We live in the world where goods and services have become more available than ever. Yet across Europe and the world, achieving low- and zero-emission urban goods delivery has remained difficult.

However, new clean freight vehicles and fuel technologies, innovative business models and efficient supply chains could be the drivers for achieving more sustainable goods distribution at the local level.

This webinar will introduce work conducted as part of CIVITAS ECCENTRIC for fostering clean and efficient urban logistics, with Stockholm (Sweden) and Madrid (Spain) set to present their innovative solutions.

Stockholm will discuss its night-time deliveries using silent vehicles and Madrid will reveal its fully electric municipal delivery truck and the scheme that sits behind it.
