Digitalization in road freight transport

1. Climate-neutral city logistics test area
The digitalization of road freight transport is indispensable for reasons of climate protection. New solutions are to be developed and tested under real-life conditions. For this purpose, a test area along with data and zero-emission zones is being set up to realize climate-neutral city logistics, including opportunities provided by autonomous delivery traffic.

2. Innovation corridor for climate-friendly commercial vehicles (INKA)
The INKA project works towards installing a large-scale showcase with focus on the Rhine-Neckar and Rhine-Main regions to enable the broad application of climate-neutral drive technologies in the commercial vehicle sector. In addition to the transition of the drivetrains, digital and data-based future technologies are also to be applied in the project.
