Why is it not possible to make large-scale multimodal fresh corridors more sustainable?

Rotterdam Maritime City

From the Transition Table fresh logistics – part of Greenports Netherlands – there was a need for a study into multimodal connections for fresh flows that should focus on the question why the many initiatives and innovations have never led to a 'sustainable' modal shift. In the report ' VERSnellen modal shift in verslogistiek. Together on the road to a reliable and sustainable fresh corridor', we present the results of a study into modal shift in fresh logistics.

Today, Thursday 14 April, Greenports Nederland organizes its annual joint meeting with the entrepreneur network 'Green meets Ports' from the Transition Table 'Verslogistiek'. During the meeting we would like to share the results of this SmartPort study 'Accelerating in fresh logistics'. Download the report here!

This project is connected to the action plan 'Versknooppunt Rotterdam and/or in the east and southeast freight corridors'. In addition, it contributes to the Mobility & Urbanisation (MoVe) programme, in which governments, infrastructural network operators and transport operators in the Southern Randstad work together on a stronger economy, good accessibility and an attractive living environment. A study that fits seamlessly within the SmartPort Roadmap Smart Logistics because of the focus on the development of sustainable and smart fresh food corridors and the great interest from logistics service providers, shippers and other Corridor parties to gain more insight into the problem.

This report was produced in collaboration between SmartPort, Erasmus UPT, Greenports Nederland, Green meets ports, LDE Centre for Sustainability, Total Produce, Danser Group and the Port of Rotterdam Authority.
