Decarbonization for European Road Carriers

Deep dive into how Carriers — and all stakeholders — can create a zero-emission future

Our new report — written by Smart Freight Centre and Kühne Logistics University with original data from Transporeon — provides a unique insight into the SME carrier market. We surveyed over 800 carriers from across Europe to better understand their challenges and offer strategic solutions.
