The North East Freight Partnership was first established in 2005 (as the Tyne and Wear Freight Partnership) and represents a collaboration between freight operators, local authorities, academics, freight user groups, industry associations and anyone with an interest in freight. In 2015, it extended its remit to include Durham and Northumberland, as well as the five Tyne and Wear authorities, so it now covers the same geographical footprint as the North East Combined Authority.
The aim of the Partnership is to promote safe, efficient and sustainable freight movement in the region. Each year, the Partnership offers a programme of activities to help achieve our goals. This includes quarterly meetings, online resources, training, promotion of Best Practice, trials of the latest technology and promotion of fleet accreditation schemes and cycle safety initiatives. Please browse the website for more information or contact us directly on the details provided. Our meetings are free to attend and open to anyone who shares the goals of the Partnership.
