The European Commission is moving towards the revision of the 2007 Freight Logistic action plan. Within the “Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area”, one of the main important objectives are to boost a more efficient use of freight transport, acting on prices and sustainability of these practices.
To this purpose, the EC recently opened a public consultation which aims to identify and elaborate policy options and necessary actions for the follow up to the current Freight and Transport Logistics Action Plan. The outcomes, the principles and the supporting tools of this strategy issues will be under the spotlight during this EU Committee Business lunch with Maximilian Strotmann, Member of cabinet to Siim Kallas, DG Transport.
Mr. Strotmann’s main area of responsibility in Mr Kallas' team is maritime transport, logistics, co-modality and intelligent transport systems.
Working for the European Commission since 1997, Mr. Strotmann gained profound insights into tourism and enterprise policy as well as into financial management and control and audit issues, before joining in 2006 the team around Vice-President Siim Kallas, first as a spokesperson then as member of cabinet in charge of anti-fraud policy and institutional IT issues.
His portfolio includes, among other, topics as maritime transport, intelligent transport systems (ITS), Logistics, Co-modality, Marco Polo project.
