Bringing together an interdisciplinary team of contributors, this book tackles the legal, logistical and supply chain challenges facing the transport sector in the context of climate change and technological development. In particular, it focuses on the European Union, which has placed a strong emphasis on ensuring future sustainability.

This innovative book analyzes how regulators at the European and global level are working to facilitate a shift towards a zero-emissions, digitalized transport industry, incorporating new environmentally sustainable energy sources and fuel alternatives. Experts in the field showcase how the EU has been particularly active in pursuing these objectives, for example with regard to its Green Deal. They assess various legal, logistical, practical, and organizational approaches, providing a holistic picture of the potential solutions to the challenge of decarbonizing the transport sector. Ultimately, the book questions whether existing and proposed legal frameworks are sufficient for implementing the approved policies and achieving necessary systemic change.

Towards a Zero-Emissions and Digitalized Transport Sector is an invaluable read for academics in environmental law, maritime law, and transport law, as well as logistics and supply chain management. Industry professionals, such as politicians and decision-makers across the globe, will also find this book a crucial resource.
