A new plan launches tomorrow, 21 October, to make freight movement smarter, more climate-compatible and more efficient across Auckland.
Working with the freight industry, Auckland Transport (AT) created Delivering the Goods – the Auckland Freight Plan (AFP) to address the challenges faced by freight as a mode in Tāmaki Makaurau.
The AFP is an evolving document, which will shape AT’s relationship with the freight industry.
Auckland Mayor Phil Goff says, “The freight industry plays a critical role in our economy. Council, industry and consumers all benefit from the efficient movement of goods across the region, and collaborating helps us ensure that we can achieve this outcome.
“From an environmental point of view, effective and efficient freight movement also helps us reduce carbon emissions and the impact of global warming,” the Mayor says.
Shane Ellison , AT’s Chief Executive, says the plan recognises the importance of improving the efficiency
