Solutions for urban logistics in a post-COVID19 world

05/11/2020

An upcoming webinar from the new ULaaDs project (Urban Logistics as an On-Demand Service) will explore urban logistics solutions in a post-COVID-19 world.

“Due to the corona situation, people buy significantly more online,” says Dr. Thomas Nobel, managing director tbnlr (to-be-now-logistics-research) in Bremen (Germany), “leading to an increase of delivery of goods that we usually only know from the pre-Christmas period.”

The trend had already been picking up before the corona crisis, but, as in many other cases, COVID-19 has accelerated this, creating more deliveries, additional traffic and increased emissions. But cities are ready to respond.

Already an exemplary city – as the German city with the highest share of cycling and low-emission levels, committed to transforming its inner city into a car-free area by 2030 – Bremen is taking the lead on testing solutions to make on-demand delivery more sustainable.

Together with Groningen (the Netherlands) and Mechelen (Belgium), Bremen will be coordinating pilot solutions for the movement of goods in cities through the ULaaDS project.

During this speed networking opportunity, participants will have the chance to hear from Bremen, Groningen, Mechelen and Bergen (the Norwegian city is one of the satellite cities in ULaaDS) about innovative solutions for zero-emission logistics in cities.

This session will also be an opportunity to become one of the follower cities in ULaaDS, the group of cities that will closely follow the developments of the project and be involved in the replication of best practices over the coming three years.

ULaaDs started in September 2020 and is a Research and Innovation Action project under the CIVITAS Initative.
