Increasing challenges – comprehensive solutions

A wide range of intractable problems such as polluting emissions, noise, deadly traffic accidents, resource depletion, and inaccessibility of amenities are directly linked to the current transport regimes. Developing countries and emerging economies are often more affected by these negative impacts than developed countries. In many developing countries, high transport costs and inaccessibility are hampering economic development and trade, air pollution related health problems are increasing, and around 1.3 million people die each year in road traffic accidents – the vast majority of them in developing countries.

Germany is a world leader in sustainable, innovative and efficient mobility Solutions. By gathering German knowledge and expertise, TUMI Friends makes a valuable contribution to the international dialogue on smart transportation and to sustainable development worldwide.

  • the continual improvement of the public transport sector
  • the development of progressive regulations and planning methods
  • the development of efficient propulsion systems
  • the integration of different modes of transport, including multimodality in logistics
