Working Group on Long Distance Freight Transport

The Working Group on long distance freight transport has produced the following research roadmaps:

Heavy Duty Truck Roadmap

Sustainable Freight System for Europe - Green, Safe and Efficient Corridors


In 2018, the LDFT Working Group is busy with a complete update and integration of these roadmaps, as well as linking them with the Electrification and Automated Driving Roadmaps recently published by ERTRAC. After several experts workshops, this completely new version is expected to be finalised by the end of 2018, for a publication early 2019. It will be 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.
