First successes in the reduction of transport-related CO2 emissions of chemical goods

The pilot phase of the ChemMultimodal project has sparked first successes: In more than half of the regions addressed by the project, tests to transport chemical goods, that until now were delivered only by road, have been accomplished using multimodal solutions including rail. The efficiency of the found new transport solutions are going to be evaluated together with the involved logistics service providers until autumn 2018. If the found multimodal solutions demonstrate their reliability, thousands of tons of CO2 can be saved. The learning and results of the pilot phase were presented and discussed at a Dissemination Conference on 19 June 2018 in Milan.
