6 Regional Green Freight and Logistics Workshop Way Forward multistakeholder approaches, either within the private sector or by bringing the public and private sector together Cooperation across borders: harmonization of approaches needed to boost efficiency; learning from each other through regional exchange Huge capacity building needs need to invest in soft and hard infrastructure Support national green freight action planning, development and implementation of measures

7 Green Freight in the Greater Mekong Region 80% of goods are transported by roads, mostly by SME truck fleets (<10 trucks) Fuel costs are the major operating cost (40-60%) and contribute to high logistics costs dominance of aged, fuel-inefficient truck fleets, inadequate logistics management capacity, low safety standards and weak driver training, and a lack of access to financial capital for technology/truck upgrades Responsibility for road freight policymaking dispersed across multiple agencies lack of policies on freight transport fuel efficiency and weak implementation of existing regulations. strong associations for freight industry in each country which play an important role in setting the policy agenda More info:
