Urban Freight Transport and Logistics Conference

John Davis represented ITS Ireland at the Urban Freight Transport and Logistics Conference which was hosted by the European Commission in Brussels on 16th and 17th November 2010. This event was foreseen in the EU Action Plan on Urban Mobility (Action 19 on urban freight transport). The purpose of the conference was to promote innovative and sustainable transport solutions for Europe. The two-day conference was structured to cover several key aspects of urban freight transport and logistics which were discussed in six thematic workshops. Each workshop included presentations detailing initiatives being taken in various European cities followed by round table discussions that were structured to enable information sharing amongst delegates as well as informing the European Commission on what further steps are required to assist in promoting and advancing initiatives in this area.
