From 24 to 26 October, the Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation (WRS) hosted the meeting of the Thinktank platform on urban logistics issues, combined with the 5th Consortium meeting of the SULPITER project.
Under the guidance of the Regional Union of the Chamber of Commerce of Veneto, these new joint coordination tools – designed to define policies for urban freight distribution – will initially be assessed in seven European cities (i.e., Bologna, Budapest, Maribor, Poznan, Prescia, Rijeka and Stuttgart).
On 25-26-27 September, the Partners of SULPiTER (Sustainable Urban Logistics PlannIng To Enhance Regional freight transport) gathered in Trieste for their 3rd Consortium and Steering Committee meeting.
On 8-9 November, the CEI participated in the first conference on mobility in the Alps, organised by the EUSALP (EU Strategy for the Alpine Region) Action Group 4 (AG4) on Transport and Mobility in Innsbruck, Austria.
The meeting was open to the general public and provided a platform for direct exchange with politicians and stakeholders in the EUSALP framework. It was the first of a series of annual events on the theme of mobility in the Alps, organised by the EUSALP AG4 leader, the European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino.
SULPITER (Sustainable Urban Logistics PlannIng To Enhance Regional freight transport) has been developed to support policy makers in improving their understanding of the Functional Urban Area freight phenomena in an energy and environmental perspective, enhancing their capacity in urban freight mobility planning in order to develop and adopt Sustainable Urban Logistics Plans – SULPs. This way, the project will contribute to the EC ambitious goal of CP2 free city logistics to be reached by 2030.
