  • Getting freight on the right track, from road to railexternal link
    If you've ever been stuck on the motorway in a tailback of polluting heavy goods vehicles, then you'll welcome this EU-funded project to reduce the burden of freight on the roads by moving it to rail with a new loading system. The method, which also saves rail freight companies both time and money, is already being introduced in one Italian port.
