The Digitalization of the Transport Sector is one of the key objectives of the European Commission. In order to take the digital agenda in transport further, the European Commission launched on 1st July 2015 the Digital Transport and Logistics Forum (DLTF).
The publication “Statistical Pocketbook 2016”, edited by the European Commission, provides an in-depth overview of internationally available transport-related statistics, covering the EU and its 28 Member States and, as far as possible, the current EU candidate countries and the EFTA countries.
“What once seemed unthinkable is now unstoppable. Strong international support for the Paris Agreement entering into force is a testament to the urgency for action, and reflects the consensus of governments that robust global cooperation, grounded in national action, is essential to meet the climate challenge”.
