Webinar: possibilities for modern city logistics


Our modern cities need to change. With more and more people living in and visiting the city centers the whole transportation system needs to adapt. This can be done in many different ways, for instance waste handling and heavy transports can be done during the night, and small, light weight parcels can be distributed via different kinds of bikes and scooters. What is clear is that not everything can be squeezed into the same template and format – diversity is key for the future of city logistics. A common enabler is the development and usage of E-vehicles of different kinds.

As part of our series of webinars on the different types of e-vehicles and their usage, this webinar will take place on March 13th at 1:30pm (UTC+1), organised by our partner Lindholmen Science Park (Sweden) and capturing the possibilities for the modern cities logistics.

This one-hour webinar will give insight and experiences from a few projects conducted in Sweden and also some ideas of brilliant new thinking when combining old, well proven technology and E-mobility:
• Experiences from Stadsleveransen and other related projects
• Opportunities and implications for the planning of the future smart city
• E-mobility vehicles for smart city logistics and future development
• Q & A session

The speakers will be:
