From the 5th till the 7th of November, Logistik & Transport will take place. Logistik & Transport is the Nordic’s region leading exhibition and conference for the transport & logistics community.
Prof. dr. Tom van Lier will join the “Temporary City Logistics” session.
The urbanisation is still strong, and cities undergo a constant growth and change. When talking about city logistics, the focus is often on distribution to shops and offices and how goods can be consolidated or distributed with new types of vehicles. But, those solutions often have a long term focus and the type of solution might not be one that fits temporary projects and events. However, construction logistics and temporary disturbances in the urban environment demand planning from many perspectives and perhaps new types of partnerships, policy and regulations.
In this session, we start from the changes that cities undergo and get inspiration from international expertise. Then we take a closer look at the city of Gothenburg and the massive construction that already started and will take place during the coming decade.
