Centre for Sustainable Road Freight – South Africa

The Centre for Sustainable Road Freight (SRF-SA) is a collaboration which currently includes Stellenbosch University, the CSIR, University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), the University of the Western Cape (UWC) and Tshwane University of Technology (TUT).

The SRF-SA is based on and linked to the Centre for Sustainable Road Freight in the United Kingdom (SRF), a collaboration between Cambridge, Heriot-Watt and Westminster Universities and organisations in the freight and logistics sectors in the UK. The South African initiative is independent of the SRF, but the two are joined by a common mission and share tools, data, and expertise.

Stellenbosch University (hosting institution), the CSIR, Wits, UWC, and TUT bring together a broad range of expertise in vehicle dynamics, road safety, mechanical engineering, rail and road logistics, transport economics, industrial engineering, transport regulation, battery expertise and materials development. The partners represent the country’s premier scientific research and development expertise in these fields.
