Decarbonisation of long distance freight transport requires actions of all the stakeholders, technologies providers, OEMs, highways and roads operators, designers and construction companies, as well as regulators and public authorities. After a brief introduction on the main challenges of long distance freight transport decarbonisation and ITS solutions, the developing or implemented technological solutions will be presented, such as ground or overhead electrical supply by the infrastructure, and the vehicle electrification. Case studies and planned experiences will be reported by Swedish and French highway owners and operators. The discussion between the panellists and the audience will address implementation issues, benefits assessment, combination of electrification with other greening approaches such as advanced eco-driving using ITS, routing of connected vehicles, etc, and assess the cost/benefit and economical challenge of implementing electrification..
