Transport technologies and logistics concepts; application for funding

The Free State supports pilot projects and demonstration projects to accelerate the introduction of new transport technologies as well as innovative logistics concepts and individual measures to optimise (rail) freight transport.



Traffic reports forecast an increasing volume of traffic in all traffic sectors. 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, the cooperation between the transport modes road, rail, water and air in the overall transport system has to be improved, the transition of passenger and freight transport at the interfaces of these transport modes has to be optimised and regional rail freight transport has to be promoted.


Funding may 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 in 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 optimisation of freight transport.
