The Greencarrier application
In our application we put focus into solving the problem how new solutions can be designed to encourage the use of sustainable delivery methods. We aim to base it on a short sea solution and pair it with modern modes of transports like electrified trucks, trains and bikes as far as possible.
We also want to clearly visualize the wins in terms of emissions and financial aspects, making it easier for customers to make active choices. The project just had a kick off and the teams and challenge management will meet for several workshops during the spring. The finale is on May 4th 2020 in Jönköping.
