Freight transport institute

Freight traffic is increasing unrelentingly. This is having a severe impact on the villages, towns and valleys along freight transit routes. But some of this freight traffic is avoidable, as is indicated by the differences in the transport intensity of different national economies.
However, we know very little about what conditions help to reduce traffic. We urgently need to know more.

Alpine Initiative

The Alpine Initiative is a Swiss association. In 1989 the association launched the popular initiative "for the protection of the Alpine region from transit traffic", that was accepted on the 20th February 1994 by a majority of both the Swiss population and the cantons.
