On the 10th May two members of the SRF, David Cebon and Alan McKinnon, contributed to a seminar jointly organised by Cranfield University and Green Freight Europe (GFE).
GFE is an industry-led initiative to promote high environmental standards in road freight transport in Europe. Partly modelled on the US SmartWay programme, it was officially launched in Brussels in March 2012 with the support of the European Commission. Over a hundred multi-national shippers and logistics companies have now joined GFE, including IKEA, Heineken, P&G, DHL and TNT.
Professor Alan McKinnon’s report of the seminar is available here.
