Hele rapporten

The present report is the final documentation of the project “Logistics in Norway”. It is partly a summary of other reports, partly a discussion of the environmental challenges faced by the logistics sector, and partly an outline of how logistics solutions and challenges are expected to develop in the future. Transport sector representatives state that development in direction of smaller, more numerous, and more frequent shipments, with uniform delivery times across the whole country, are factors contributing to growing road freight volumes with low utilisation rates. Statistics Norway’s forecasts for population growth illustrate that increased transport volumes, particularly in the cities, is challenging in relation to the EU goal of CO2 free urban distribution by 2030. In some rural areas a population reduction is expected, increasing the need for co-distribution. To cope with the environmental challenges the sector is facing, there is a need for better utilisation of capacity, increased use of environmentally friendly transport modes, and cleaner sources of fuel. To achieve this, better coordination, enhanced technological development and increased competitiveness for intermodal transport are required.
