Digitalisation and e-commerce have changed urban logistics. Introducing innovations in city logistics and making it more sustainable requires cooperation between a wide range of partners as well as new vehicles, business models and technologies. How to manage these changes sustainably, and benefit as a city, is one of EIT Urban Mobility’s key challenge areas. EIT Urban Mobility aims to build Action and Interest Groups across cities, industry, and academia for all of its key challenge areas. The Sustainable City Logistics open Innovation Community Day is the first step in building this wider logistics focused network.
This session will include an opening by the EIT Urban Mobility, followed by city speakers who will give their insights on working with EIT Urban Mobility, thought leaders will speak on key innovations in sustainable logistics and will be followed by private sector innovation pitches.
