The Centre is supported by a group of industrial partners from the road freight industry who collaborate with the researchers to define the research agenda.




The focus of the Centre is to achieve deep reductions in CO2 emissions from the road freight sector by combining highly-focussed vehicle engineering with systematic improvements to freight distribution  systems: optimising vehicles in parallel with logistical tasks.
