Webinar: How can cities decarbonise urban logistics using public-private partnerships?
Logistics plays an essential role in the transport sector, since all places now require deliveries, collection and servicing. This field also, however, brings along challenges such as congestion, air pollution, CO2 emissions, noise, health and safety concerns. These challenges are even more evident in cities, which act as hubs where goods are most handled, stored, and delivered. Cities are also the place where many solutions are being piloted to address these concerns by, for example, deploying e-vehicles at consolidation centres, or cargo bikes from micro-depots.
Urban logistics by definition involves both the private and public sectors. Establishing cooperation models between local and regional governments and the business sector – with constant dialogue and combined planning – is key to brainstorming and piloting new models that can decarbonise the urban logistics sector.
This webinar will provide a wide overview of the challenges and solutions to decarbonise urban logistics, drawing on best practices and approaches piloted by cities and businesses as part of the ULaaDS and LEAD projects. For more information, view the agenda by clicking here.
This webinar is part of the Covenant of Mayors – Europe Office led “Coalition of the willing on sustainable mobility,” and a related webinar series on “policy options to reduce emissions from transport”. This webinar edition is being co-organised with, among others, CIVITAS, ULaaDS and LEAD.
