Urban logistics of tomorrow:

ENABLING SMARTER CITIES

Urban Logistics of tomorrow
Enabling smarter cities

Since the amount and complexity of urban shipments is increasing drastically, cities are facing new challenges such as illegal parking and more emissions. Common logistic practices need to be reconsidered by all participants to foster smarter urban logistic solutions.

A redesign of urban logistics is necessary and urban logistic players need to be supported to keep up with the changes of the complex environment. Apart from challenges, players as well recognize opportunities for future city logistics. Not only startups, also established companies test and implement new technologies and are open for innovative business models.

The Urban Logistics Convention 2017 will bring together international top-level experts representing industry, research and users to discuss latest developments and challenges. The Convention will give a unique insight on new technological and strategic trends for smarter cities.

Smarter cities will be characterized by more sustainable urban logistics solutions. Companies that embrace new technologies and fulfil the changed customer demands will take urban logistics to the next level. Reaching that goal is a collective challenge – Academia researching innovative solutions, cities enabling permissive regulatory frameworks and companies being visionary.
