Using ITS to manage Europe´s busiest freight routes
URSA MAJOR focusses on improving long distance freight traffic from the North Sea to the Mediterranean. Deployment of dedicated ITS systems and services improves truck parking and supports better long distance freight navigation. Removing bottlenecks by better traffic management reduces delays and improves reliability of journey planning, and improved incident management increases freight safety. Together with the European Commission, the URSA MAJOR partnership of road operators is willing to provide a substantial investment in ITS systems. Beyond this investment, the partnership cooperates on relevant harmonisation aspects that provide for cross border interoperability and continuity, supporting seamless ITS services.
