Sustainable freight gateways

As an important centre for the import and export of goods in a city or region, freight gateways or logistics hubs provide a key economic contribution to their local region and beyond. They support the development of local trade, connect the port with the regional hinterland and enable global freight connections. By applying more sustainable practices to freight logistics movements, a freight gateway can become more sustainable and efficient, whilst remaining competitive.

Weastflows partner, Limerick City & County Council (LCCC) has developed a best practice model for existing freight gateways to become as sustainable and efficient as possible. LCCC has also created a toolkit to help gateway regions improve freight logistics operations. Approaches to help gain the commitment of the freight logistics industry have also been explored through enhanced stakeholder engagement and consultation.
