Public Consultation on New Freight Funding Scheme


The European Commission is inviting all stakeholders with an interest in improving efficiency and sustainability of freight transport, to reply to a questionnaire with the objective of designing a new funding scheme for freight transport services in 2014-2020.
This public consultation follows the closing of the EU Marco Polo programme, a funding instrument to improve environmental performance of the EU freight transport services that covered the period 2003-2013. To conceive the next funding scheme, the Commission is now willing to gather feedback on obstacles in the way of sustainable freight transport, experiences gained from implementation of the Marco Polo programme, market needs, objectives and other inputs.
