Back to all news

Frazer-Nash contributed to the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) report: 'Better delivery: the challenge for freight'.

In November 2017 the government asked the National Infrastructure Commission to conduct a new study on the future of freight.

Frazer-Nash was a contributor to the study, which reviewed options to improve existing infrastructure, and recommended ways to use new technologies and processes to transform how freight moves by road and rail, in towns and cities, cross-country and into and out of ports and airports.

The study found that through the adoption of new technologies and the recognition of freight’s needs in the planning system, it is possible to decarbonise road and rail freight by 2050 and manage its contribution to congestion.
