Freight transport in Germany faces major challenges: According to official forecasts, transport capacity will grow by around 40 percent by 2030 compared to 2010, while climate emissions by transport will have to be lowered by 40 percent in the same period. At the same time, the transport and logistics industry suffers from an acute shortage of skilled workers, which could jeopardize security of supply in Germany. For the industry associations Allianz pro Schiene (ApS) and the Federal Association of Road Haulage Logistics and Waste Management (BGL) an ideal time to conclude a cooperation: With the help of the online platform "railway.tools", DB Netz, Allianz pro Schiene and BGL will considerably simplify the access to combined road / rail transport.
Together, the three cooperation partners also want to work on developing the link between the two modes of transport in an intelligent, transparent and neutral manner. The logistics platform is to be further developed in a user-friendly manner as the centerpiece of this initiative and geared towards the major passenger portals of passenger transport.
