es) in the current system, as well as considering the aggressive investments that other trade blocs are making in new infrastructure and lower-carbon transportationinvestments that may be outpacing efforts in North America.

"Reducing the environmental impact of freight transportation in the face of increasing trade and economic growth in North America requires much more than continued progress on fuel economy and transport technology," said CEC Executive Director Evan Lloyd. "This report calls on our three governments to adopt a vision of an integrated, intelligent freight transportation system for North America."

"Without such a vision, and the transformational investments that go with it, GHG emissions from freight transportation will continue to increase and the NAFTA countries will risk losing their competitive edge," Lloyd said. "But the report identifies clear opportunities, especially in light of infrastructure-related stimulus investment, to get this right."

Prepared under the guidance of an Advisory Group that included stakeholders from industry, academia, the environmental sector and government, Destination Sustainability proposes six recommendations:

  1. Coordination and Networking. The NAFTA partners should consider forming a ministerial-level North American Transportation Forum that will work in cooperation with an industry, expert and stakeholder group to foster an integrated, intelligent freight transportation system, a more seamless and efficient set of linkages that bring the three countriesfunctionally if not literallycloser together.

  2. Carbon Pricing and System Efficiency Strategies. Canada, Mexico and the United States should consider putting a price on carbon to give everyone a clear signal that they should be investing in efficiency and in low-carbon fuel alternatives.

  3. Investments to Improve the Efficiency of the Freight Transportation System. The three countries should re-in
