Urban Freight Distribution: Current Challenges & Future Goals
Wed, October 19, 2016, 2:00 PM – 9:00 PM CEST
The Rome Workshop is organized in the framework of the six NOVELOG city workshops.
The workshop will bring together stakeholders from Rome and other European cities, in order to present and discuss their experiences on solutions implemented, examine possibilities of transferability and solution adoption by other cities, identify current market trends in the logistics sector. The workshop aims at achieving stakeholder cooperation and common ground for exchange of information and experiences on implementing sustainable Urban Freight Transport (UFT).
Rome is the capital of Italy and of the Lazio region. With 2.9 million residents in 1,285 km2, it is also the country's largest and most populated municipality and fourth largest city in the European Union, by population within city limits. Thus, undoubtedly, the urban freight distribution represents a great challenge for the city and the new Mobility Master Plan pays particular attention to this issue.
The city of Rome has been involved in EU projects, as Smartset, and now is focused on Novelog Project and CityLab, to contribute to the reduction of both congestion and CO2 emissions thanks to a more effcient urban freight distribution.
The workshop is structured as follows:
A) Presentation of NOVELOG and CITYLAB projects in Rome
B) Keynote speeches from major industry players
C) Experiences and innovations for UFT
D) Open moderated discussion
