Climate friendly city logistics in the Nordics

Visual Arena, Lindholmspiren 5, Göteborg & Online
CLOSER and the Swedish Transport Administration invite you to participate in the conference: Climate friendly city logistics in the Nordics.

Within the framework of the projects DenCity and Attractive and climate-smart transport in the cities, both with a focus on climate-smart and sustainabla mobility in the dense city, we want to invite you to a two-day online seminar that will be characterized by exciting lectures held by researchers and other experts.

The focus will be on showing best practice from the various Nordic countries - solutions that aim to contribute to sustainable urban development in Nordic cities and metropolitan regions.  Three main scenes will be addressed during the two days. 

  • How do we address freight transports in the urban planning process?
  • How can we utilize co-loading for increased transport efficiency?
  • How can we utilize the urban waterways?
