CIVITAS Urban Freight Workshop and Study Tour on Cyclelogistics

14 June 2016 Gothenburg, Sweden

The Urban Freight Logistics Thematic Group of CIVITAS and the European Cyclists' Federation are organising with the city of Gothenburg a ‘Cyclelogistics Empowerment Workshop for Cities’ and a Study Tour on ‘How to manage urban freight deliveries’.

Urban areas across Europe are suffering from negative impacts of urban freight trasnport, like poor air quality, CO2 emissions, congestion, nuisance and safety issues.

The city of Gothenburg has successfully dealt with the problem of urban freight delivery by adopting access restrictions, but also by implementing green logistics measures (more info at www.innerstadengbg.se).

The Urban Freight Logistics Thematic Group of CIVITAS and the European Cyclists' Federation are organising with the city of Gothenburg:

  • a ‘Cyclelogistics Empowerment Workshop for Cities’ and
  • a Study Tour on ‘How to manage urban freight deliveries’ .

Gary Armstrong, Cyclelogistics expert, will run the workshop, featuring practical sessions and presentations on the advantages and disadvantages of various cycle delivery options and local opportunities to encourage Cyclelogistics.

In the afternoon, a representative of the city of Gothenburg will present the results of the city's Cyclelogistics policy and guide a thematic visit of the city.

The Workshop and Study Tour will take place on June 14th in Gothenburg, Sweden, and it is free of charges.

The organisers will limit the number of spaces to guarantee the quality of interactions during the workshop: if you are a city official, make sure to register early!
