TomTom launches International Traffic Foundation as part of ongoing pledge to tackle congestion
The move, one year on from TomTom’s commitment to reduce congestion for all in its Traffic Manifesto, will bring together key stakeholders from academia, industry and policy-making.
The not-for-profit TomTom International Traffic Foundation will nurture talent in the field of traffic management, funding PhD and post-doctorate research, publishing research papers and hosting a number of traffic-related events.
Giles Margerison (Inset), director, UK and Ireland, TomTom Business Solutions, said: ‘The impacts of congestion on businesses are manifold, from increasing journey times, mileage and fuel costs to reducing productivity.
‘At TomTom Business Solutions we provide the tools for business to minimise the impact of traffic so that drivers spend their time effectively and productively in their vehicles. Our continued commitment to this is the TomTom International Traffic Foundation.’
