Panel discussion: The city as a logistical challenge
There are more and more people living in cities, and these people also happen to shop more where they live. These are the two main factors behind the massive development of urban logistics in recent years. However, they are not the only ones. How do the plans of developers who prepare premises for storage and distribution comply with the needs of city logistics? In what ways can the necessary goods be transported in increasingly dense traffic? Is it possible to further optimize transports to city centers in order to meet all the requirements related to legislation and the protection of the environment and the population? Will new distribution schemes and innovations for urban supply come onto the scene?
