The EMS provides the road freight sector and the whole industry with efficient logistics solutions whilst reducing the environmental impact of moving freight. By using existing standardized EU modules, compatible with maritime, inland waterway and rail freight transport, the EMS also paves the way for an enhanced interaction with other transport modes. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss how EMS could have a positive effect on the development of intermodal road-rail transport solutions, short sea shipping and inland waterway transport.
