Ports and Goods Movement Workgroup

The NEDC Ports and Goods Movement Workgroup brings together government, industry, and port stakeholders to implement innovative, cost-effective strategies for reducing emissions, conserving fuel, promoting sustainability and "freight as a good neighbor" practices, and responding to climate change through mitigation and adaptation at ports in the Northeast. The group meets regularly by conference call, learns from local and national experts, and visits ports to learn more about their operations, equipment and emissions.
