Improving urban freight and logistics

By News Editor / Updated: 04 Aug 2015

Planning and managing a well-performing urban freight system that meets social, economic and environmental goals is a challenging task. Responsibility for managing this could be given to a person or team of people who would perform this role, which has been termed 'city logistics manager'. This would also be accompanied by appropriate measures and policies to help the city logistics manager achieve the goals of a more integrated and efficient freight system.

The C-LIEGE project has developed a toolbox of hard and soft measures for making freight and logistics systems more efficient, including financial instruments, technical and regulatory restrictions, additional services or information and communication campaigns. It also provides a detailed guide to the establishment and function of the city logistics manager role.
