Climate change is a major concern around the globe, and the freight industry is a major polluter. The goal of the project was to create a roadmap towards zero-emissions in the Swiss long-haul freight transport industry. Working with the sponsor company, Designwerk, the roadmap was formulated with three main objectives: researching the best technology, determining the concerns of industry stakeholders, and creating a plan for implementation. Solutions were determined with battery-powered trucks in mind. The final roadmap shows a plan for phasing zero-emission technology into Switzerland. It was recommended that stakeholders should conduct more research into improving batteries for vehicles and that further research projects could be done on improving specific infrastructure.
