The Aims

NexTrust aims to build trusted networks which will fully integrate shippers, logistics service providers, and intermodal operators as equal partners. The project will be coordinating 20 different pilots which address problems across the length and breadth of European logistics. These pilots will aim to:

  • Remove 40% of lorries
  • Remove 15% of delivery vehicles
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70%
  • Increase load factors by 50%.

In each pilot area, NexTrust is driving efficiency to lower congestion, uncertainty and fuel use. It will help logistics providers to cut costs and remain sustainable in the long-term. Find out how NexTrust will reach across Europe.
