About Green Corridor concept

Green Corridors are a European concept denoting long-distance freight transport corridors where advanced technology and co-modality are used to achieve energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact. Green Corridors support the EU's agenda towards decarbonising transport while emphasizing the need for efficient logistics.
