In 2012, the International Transport Forum's Transport Achievement Award will be awarded to a project, initiative or service/product offer that demonstrates progress towards the vision of seamless transport.

Seamless transport requires connections between services, systems, markets and industries that result in movement of people and goods with minimal planning and effort. Ideally, clients only need to determine when to use a transport service, and the points of departure and arrival. The transport system then meets this need by combining various modes, connections and services, with minimal transaction hassle and in a cost-effective manner.

The International Transport Forum, with the support of several key industry organisations, notably ITS Canada, ITS Japan, the International Chamber of Shipping, the International Association of Ports and Harbors and the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) is pleased to invite candidates to submit applications for the 2012 Transport Achievement Award.

Applications for the 2012 Award are now closed.
