Traffic reports forecast growing traffic volumes in all traffic areas. In order to cope with the further increase in traffic, new transport technologies must be increasingly developed and introduced to make traffic more fluid and environmentally compatible. In this context, cooperation between the road, rail, water and air transport modes in the overall transport system must be improved, the transition of passenger and freight traffic at the interfaces of these transport modes must be optimized and regional rail freight traffic must be promoted.
Funding can be provided for the development of new transport technologies, the implementation of new projects and demonstration projects to accelerate the introduction of new transport technologies and innovative projects and pilot projects of regional rail freight transport. In addition, innovative drive technologies for rail vehicles and trucks as well as the development of new logistics concepts and
individual measures for the optimization of freight transport.
