World Economic Forum and Partners to Develop India’s First Zero-Emissions Road Freight Cluster

India is expected to have the world’s second-largest road freight demand in the coming decade. To address this and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the World Economic Forum has launched the Moving India initiative. The initiative aims to establish India’s first zero-emission road freight cluster, which will be implemented along the west coast of Gujarat and Maharashtra, with over 550 zero-emission trucks to be deployed within the next 18-24 months. The deployment of these trucks will provide the required demand and scale to enhance competition, lower costs, and clarify policies for scaling up the initiative. The initiative is supported by India’s Ministry of Ports, Shipping, and Waterways and seeks to promote sustainable growth.
