CIVITAS thematic course

Sustainable Urban Freight Transport (CIV15)


Description
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. CIVITAS cities encourage the use of cleaner freight vehicles and are developing solutions to better coordinate freight logistics. More efficient freight deliveries can reduce congestion, lower emissions and free up space for sustainable modes.
