Green Freight India    On-going

Project Lead: Ernst Doering
Duration: 01 Apr 2019 to 31 Oct 2023

Description :

India’s freight transport sector offers enormous potential for climate mitigation and sustainable economic development by increasing its efficiency, shift of road based freight to railway and ships and promoting modern technologies. Therefore, the project attempts to introduce appropriate strategies, technical solutions, and approaches to develop competences to coordinate and implement the National Integrated Logistics Plan (NILP). The project advises its partner ministry on setting up coordination and monitoring mechanisms for the NILP. It also supports selected national authorities in the development of climate-friendly standards and regulations as part of the NILP Action Plans. Promising approaches are tested in a selected logistics corridor. In order to ensure sustainable implementation, the project strengthens the resources and competences of federal authorities as well as private logistics contractors and truck drivers
