The North East Freight Quality Partnership

The North East Freight Quality Partnership was first established back in 2005 (as the Tyne and Wear Freight Partnership) and represents a collaboration between freight operators, local authorities, academics, user groups, industry associations and anyone with a keen interest in freight.

The aim of the partnership is to promote safe, efficient and sustainable freight movement in the region and beyond.

Each year, it offers a programme of activities which 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.

The North East Freight Quality Partnership meetings are free to attend and open to anyone. For more information, visit the North East Freight Quality Partnership website.
