Green Freight Initiative Viet Nam – Final Workshop

Vinh Phuc, Viet Nam 14 to 15 March 2017

This two-part workshop brought together government and private sector transport sector representatives to discuss the results, challenges and opportunities of the Core Environment Program’s GMS Green Freight Initiative.

Since 2013 the initiative has tested interventions that contribute to fuel-efficiency and lower environmental impact, including eco-driver training, retrofit technologies and improved logistics management.

In Viet Nam, the initiative was implemented by the Directorate for Roads of Viet Nam (Ministry of Transport) and Grutter Consulting. Small-medium truck freight companies, driver training schools, logistics companies, and transport associations were key partners.

Day 1 of the event focused on the eco-driver training component. Day 2 broadened out to other aspects of the Green Freight Initiative, including discussions on other green freight work in the country, and future opportunities and challenges.

The final report for the Green Freight Initiative in Viet Nam can be downloaded here. Presentations from the workshop are available for download below.

The Directorate for Roads of Viet Nam hosted the workshop.
