Making international road freight transport safer
C.A.S.H. project aims to develop practical solutions to make international road freight transport safer, more predictable and affordable in the Baltic Sea region. The project intends to do this by:
- improving co-operation between authorities
- harmonising training of inspection officials
- testing safety equipment and IT systems to be used by relevant authorities
The project brings together police officers and other authorities inspecting Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) in the Baltic Sea area. The project will benefit not only them through harmonized practices, but logistics business as a whole. The project is co-ordinated by Turku School of Economics in Finland, as part of University of Turku.
C.A.S.H. project is part-financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund) through the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013.
