Long Distance Freight Transport

The Working Group on Long Distance Freight Transport has produced in 2019 a fully new research roadmap.

In 2018, the LDFT Working Group was busy with a complete update and integration of past roadmaps, as well as linking them with the Electrification and Connected Automated Driving Roadmaps published by ERTRAC. After several experts workshops, this completely new version was published early 2019.

It is structured by application domains:

  • Confined areas
  • Hub-to-hub
  • Open roads
  • Urban environment

Specific objectives and research priorities will be proposed for each of these application domains.
