Better connectivity will help Asia to decarbonise

Improving transport connectivity in Asia in a strategic and well-planned way will enable the continent's sub-regions to reverse the trend of rising transport emissions while advancing economic development. This is the core message of a series of three special issues of the ITF Transport Outlook in collaboration with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific:

Can digitalisation help tackle freight emissions?

New ITF research has identified low-hanging digital fruits to reduce global freight emissions, such as "smart steaming" that optimises maritime port call operations and digital technologies for higher truck asset sharing. Each measure can limit CO2 emission growth to 40% between 2019 and 2050. The results are part of a study showing how digitalisation will be the core driver of a sustainable recovery of freight transport following the Covid-19 pandemic.
