Border crossings to neighboring countries - analysis of the opportunities and challenges of catenary trucks for freight transport to neighboring regions of Baden-Wuerttemberg
Significant shares of the heavy-duty freight transport found on the roads in Ba-den-Wuerttemberg are transborder transportations. This working paper therefore focuses on a discussion of border crossings to neighboring countries (especially France, Switzerland, and Austria) in relation to catenary trucks and other alternative powertrains in heavy-duty road freight transport. This involved a one-day workshop with experts representing energy supply, freight transport and transport infrastructure from Baden-Wuerttemberg and its neighboring countries, which took place at the beginning of 2020. The workshop's objectives were to discuss practical experiences and pass them on to countries that have not yet taken action.
