#EURegionsWeek 2017 - Regions and cities as agents of change for sustainable urban freight transport, 11 October 2017 Brussels, Belgium

Essential to the local economy, urban freight activities cause negative external effects that impact the quality of life and the attractiveness of cities and regions. To reduce these effects, local authorities are engaging with logistic companies and local businesses in order to come up with new strategies. This has led to a wide range of initiatives, including regulated delivery times, innovative logistics schemes, use of alternative freight vehicles.


In the session, the local authorities of Val-de-Marne, City of Saragossa, City of Gothenburg, Arnhem Nijmegen Region, Stuttgart Region, with the support of the networks Polis and ERRIN, will present the solutions implemented at their level to tackle these issues and their achievements so far.

The session will be moderated by Claire Depré, Head of Unit for Sustainable & Intelligent Transport in charge of intelligent transport systems, low emission transport and urban mobility in DG MOVE.
