EFFICIENCY

Barbara Thaler

MEP, Transport and Tourism Committee member

---will kick off Panel I on the theme of efficiency

MEP Thaler will highlight the importance of using scarce energy resources in today’s Europe as efficiently as possible – through Combined Transport in case of long distance inland freight transport.  Labour efficiency is an equal challenge on an ageing continent with a stagnating population – and the jobs provided in an intermodal transport-chain are not only excel in value-added, but also offer an attractive work/life balance in the transport sector, especially in light of the truck driver shortage that plagues hauliers throughout the developed world.
