Description:The Transport Avoidance Project encourages Dutch enterprises to develop and implement means to reduce transportation of commercial goods. The Dutch government supports business innovations that both reduce costs and transport requirements in three manners: - developing and gathering knowledge about opportunities for adapting a companys organisation and production processes so as to reduce the need for transport; - sharing this knowledge with enterprises; - providing funding for enterprises that have promising ideas for organising their operations in a more transport-efficient way. The Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management has thus far supported more than 100 projects. In 2006, EUR 1.4 million will be offered to Dutch businesses.
