The delivery of goods makes up a significant share of traffic in European cities and is a major contributor to deteriorating air quality, rising carbon emissions and congestion.
More efficient freight deliveries can reduce congestion, lower emissions and free up space for sustainable modes.
This e-course, part of the CIVITAS Initiative's extensive catalogue of online learning, introduces sustainable urban freight transport, and outlines its importance and challenges.
It also explains how to involve stakeholders, presents strategies for successful implementation, and highlights successful European case studies.
The CIVITAS e-courses are individual courses that can be followed online, anyplace, anytime. Each e-course is concluded with an online test.
CIVITAS Learning Centre certificates are given to participants who have successfully passed the course. An e-course takes approximately 1-2 hours.
