The Transport Development Fund

Since 1989, Transportens Udviklingsfond (the Transport Development Fund) has worked to secure the future of freight transport in Denmark. We launch initiatives and support good ideas that develop the industry and demonstrate its value. The fund maintains a special focus on promoting and developing training programmes for the freight transport industry.

Ultimately, the goal is to create an attractive future for employees and companies in the organised labour market of the Danish freight transport industry.

The Danish freight transport unions and associations ATL (Transportens Arbejdsgivere) and 3F (Fagligt Fælles Forbund) are the organisations behind Transportens Udviklingsfond.

The purpose of the fund

Transportens Udviklingsfond initiates, supports and implements a wide range of projects. Common to all projects is that they develop and create value for the entire freight transport industry – for the benefit of companies, employees and educational institutions.
