Freight distribution is a vital part of life in modern cities and plays a relevant role within the whole urban mobility system. But, among the different components of mobility, urban freight logistics had and sometimes continue to have less emphasis in city policies and thus failing to contribute to the reduction of its negative impacts on urban liveability, like noise, pollution, congestion and reduced road safety.
The CIVITAS Urban Freight Logistics Thematic Group invites you to join the webinar “Making urban freight logistics more sustainable: from theory to practice” on 16th December 2015 @ 3 PM CET.
In order to support policy makers and urban mobility practitioners, the CIVITAS WIKI project recently released the Policy Note ‘Making urban freight logistics more sustainable’ which condensates successful approaches and solutions particularly addressed to small and medium-sized European cities.
Organized by the CIVITAS Thematic Group Urban Freight Logistics, the free webinar will present and discuss more in detail the Policy Note offering also an insight on some selected measures. One concrete experience from the CIVITAS city of Almada (PT) on how to plan and develop an efficient and sustainable urban freight logistics system will be also presented, together with the new CIVITAS Freight Cluster established for better coordination of urban freight projects at urban level.
