CLECAT Position Paper on EU ‘Fit for 55’ Package: forwarders’ views on the transport related proposals

Over the last couple of months, the European Freight Forwarders Association (CLECAT) has reflected on the various initiatives set out in the European Commission’s Fit for 55 Package. The package is meant to pave the way to a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990, accelerating the EU’s plan to fully decarbonise by 2050. 

CLECAT welcomes the Package as an opportunity for a swift transition to zero emission mobility. CLECAT has now issued a position paper providing a comprehensive overview of the views of European freight forwarders and logistics service providers on the proposals and how they can be improved in support of the emission reduction goals of their shipper customers and different modes of transport.
