Working cultures in the face of intermodal freight transport systems

Objective

Main objectives of the WORKFRET project :

· To contribute to the development of an efficient freight transport system in Europe taking into account the interests and requirements of the people who actually operate them.
· To identify the characteristics of existing working cultures in relation to the intermodal transport systems, interfaces between the various transport systems, potential problems and conflict areas/ barriers of any kind.
· To identify organisational changes and barriers to change.
· To describe alternative "desired structures" and their characteristics.
· To define systems' strengths and weaknesses, propose and evaluate alternative strategies for the exploitation of new opportunities such as creation of new jobs and better working conditions.
· To propose measures for higher efficiency and enhanced safety in transport.
· To propose strategies and methodologies for the appropriate control and monitoring of the organisational and socio- economic changes under consideration.
· To propose policies at European Union, National, Trade Union level which will contribute to the creation of "desired structures" such as Anthropocentric systems.
· To disseminate the concepts developed and the results to all actors involved.
