Launched by a series of keynote speeches from transport and energy policymakers, the results of a study performed on ZCCT will be unveiled.  Intermodal sector testimonials will follow in a panel format, closed by a second panel of European intermodal leaders.

ATTEND to be able to ask questions on the results of the study, ZCCT’s implications for Fit for 55 and the European Green Deal objectives, as well as for the impact on energy efficiency of freight transportation and the decoupling of Europe from Russian fossil energy sources dependency.
