Catalyze the sector-wide adoption of proven and cost-effective technologies and measures starting with China as a first market through the Smart Freight Centre's Smart Trucks Platform project
Technologies and other measures that improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions will only be taken up across industry if barriers are removed and incentives are created. Many carriers do not have access to credible information, experts, financing and incentive schemes to facilitate implementation across industry. Ample efforts exist but are often limited in scale, not designed for industry-wide uptake of successful solutions, or not shared sufficiently.
SFC aims to develop and demonstrate a sustainable mechanism that mobilizes partners to define and commit to their role in a value proposition for the freight sector to take up proven solutions at scale.
SFC takes proven and cost-effective technologies and measures to scale by:
- Developing and testing a business model with a robust business case and solutions to main barriers
- Bringing industry and partners together to accelerate the uptake of these measures by industry
- Replicating efforts to other technologies and measures and markets around the world.
