In Colombia, interurban road freight transport is characterized by a very old vehicle fleet with an average age of 18 years, a low level of business development and inefficient logistic operations. The limited financial resources of the numerous small logistic providers reinforce the steady ageing of the vehicle fleet. The NAMA has aims to reduce and rejuvenate the vehicle fleet, to promote the development of modern freight transport businesses, and to enhance the efficiency of logistic operations.
This publication explains the scope of the NAMA, its motivation and objective, supporting measures, the mitigation potential and co-benefits, and funding.
