Aim

‘To ensure the efficient transportation of freight within Worcestershire, such that it supports a strong local economy, but increasingly does not compromise the existing or future needs of our society or environment.’

The Worcestershire FQP Working Group is made up of the following members:

Worcestershire County Council, (WCC) 6 District Councils, Police, Freight Operators and Generators, Road Haulage Association (RHA), Freight Transport Association (FTA), National Farmers Union (NFU), County Association of Local Councils (CALC).

What is Multimodal Freight?

Worcestershire's Multimodal Freight Policy (PDF 9 MB) Provides the strategic framework for the development of measures which will help to improve the efficient movement and operation of freight by all modes around the country, which will act to positively enhance the vitality of the local economy.

The policy document sets out the Worcestershire County Council policy on the delivery of measures to support efficient movement and operation of freight by all modes and supersedes all previous documentation published by Worcestershire County council on the subject.
