The new EU-funded LEAD project is running a survey to gather views on the key challenges, trends and influencing factors characterising urban freight transport (UFT), involving key experts and practitioners. The survey iavailable at this link.

LEAD, a new project under the CIVITAS Initiative, creates Digital Twins of urban logistics networks in six cities.  It is doing so to support experimentation and decision making with on-demand logistics operations in a public-private urban setting.

As a preliminary activity, LEAD collates, refines and further develops existing knowledge and understanding of the city logistics landscape in the era of the on-demand economy. By doing so, it is creating new knowledge-driven logistics solutions to cope with contemporary challenges.

Building upon the legacy of the EU-funded NOVELOG project, a set of factors influencing the UFT environment has been drawn up. Participants are asked to assess to what extent each factor influences the development of the urban logistics ecosystem and to add any further factors that they consider important that do not appear in the list.

This survey will take approximately 20-25 minutes of your time. 

The data and answers to the survey are anonymised and will be used solely for this research and will not be shared with other entities, in full compliance with GDPR.

Fill in the survey here - the final deadline to do so is 4 September!
