Urban logistics - views from the commercial road transport sector
Commercial road goods transport is a key component of efficient logistics chains and is often the only option for urban delivery. While the importance of urban logistics is expected to increase even further in the future, several important challenges remain. These include the current lack of alternative fuels infrastructure as well as introducing urban vehicle access restrictions that create barriers to cross-border and domestic transport services. In addition, data sharing will need to be closely examined further as questions remain on how data is accessed and shared among different stakeholders.
This presentation will look into how alternative fuels infrastructure, urban vehicle access restrictions, intelligent transport systems (ITS) and data sharing should be introduced and deployed in a coordinated, pragmatic and efficient manner to meet the objectives set out in the European Green Deal.
