European e-Freight capabilities for Co-modal transport


The e-Freight project is aimed at supporting, from a transport perspective, the three pillars of European Policy namely:

  • Strengthening of the internal market and competitiveness;
  • Improving regulation to create a more dynamic business environment;
  • Promoting sustainable development.

Specifically e-Freight will contribute to the goals of the Freight transport Logistics Action Plan (Oct 2007), and ITS Action Plan (Oct 2008) pertaining to the development of:

  1. A standard framework for freight information exchange covering all transport modes and all stakeholders.
  2. A European Single Transport Document for carriage of goods with all the necessary legislative support,
    irrespective of mode.
  3. A Single Window (single access point) for administrative procedures in all modes.
  4. Simple, harmonised border crossings procedures for all modes of transport for all EU member states.
  5. Simple procedures and the necessary infrastructure for establishing secure and efficient transport corridors between Europe, USA, and Asia.
