The purpose of this paper is to provide evidence that the number of teaching units dealing with eco-friendly transport correlates with the provision of modern educational material. This study presents first results of the cooperation REWWay (Research and Education in Inland Waterway Logistics), whose overall research objective is to identify the current situation and future ideas concerning contents about eco-friendly freight transport and learning material used to educate it. This study takes place at an Austrian University, which is located in the middle of Europe. Qualitative research methods such as expert interviews and focus groups are conducted. Participants of this empiric research are teachers at upper and vocational schools and university lecturers for education and training of logistics. Results suggest that more teaching units on sustainable transport are able to support decisions which are in favor of eco-friendly alternatives.
