“Influencing trends in European logistics planning”
Join us and learn about the newest trends influencing city logistics around the World.
The trainings are organized by the project SULPiTER (Sustainable Urban Logistics PlannIng To Enhance Regional freight transport) with the aim to improve the Sustainable Urban Logistics Plans (SULPs) in Functional Urban Areas.
The two webinars will be conducted by specialists from the Institute of Logistics and Warehousing in Poznan (PL), as a result of two researches conducted in the framework of SULPITER project (desk research and Delphi analysis). The presentations will be enriched with the experience of SULPITER project partners.
By taking a part in these webinars, you will get complex information about state of the art in the topic of trends influencing logistics and inspiration for the future. You can expect more than one hour of condensed knowledge useful for developing your FUA.
|Webinar 1 (15th May h14:00 CET): Consumption, production and spatial organisation|
|Megatrends on changing consumption and production (e.g. 3D printing, growth of e-commerce, sharing economy and globalization trends) and spatial organization (e.g. logistic sprawl, pick-up network points and Urban distribution centres) are the contents of the first webinar.|
|Webinar 2 (22nd May h14:00 CET): Supply chain management and technologies|
|Supply chain management and distribution (e.g. Omni-channel logistics or green supply chain principles) and technologies and equipment (e.g. internet of things or clean vehicles) are the topics of the second webinar.|
Transport is the second largest energy-consuming sector, with a 32 % of share of final energy consumption. The European Commission has set the ambitious goal of CO2-free city logistics by 2030. This does not only call for public policy actions, but for a shift in the paradigm of policies. 82% of Europeans will live in cities by 2050, therefore urban freight issues need to be tackled in the perspective of functional urban areas (FUAs), taking into consideration the functional transport and economic relations between inner urban centres and the surrounding urban territories. This is how policies will achieve impacts through territorial and economic development of central European urban areas.
SULPITER will support policy makers in improving their understanding of FUAs freight phenomena in an energy and environmental perspective.
The project will enhance their capacity in urban freight mobility planning in order to develop and adopt sustainable urban logistics plans (SULPs). Policy makers in Bologna, Budapest, Poznan, Brescia, Stuttgart, Maribor and Rijeka will engage, in cooperation with further local, regional and national non-partner authorities and with technical partners.
They will work on transnational policy capacity building, and on the development of transnational analytical and governance tools, resulting in improved and adopted policies for the future energy and environmental sustainability of freight transport in central European FUAs.
On February 7th took place the transnational webinar on SUMPs and SULPs with the aim to improve the skills of Public Administrations on SULP development and on freight mobility planning in functional urban areas (FUAs). See the webinar and download the presentations!
SULPiTER partners met in Poznan on February 20-22nd, 2017 to discuss on the development of the SULPiTER transnational tool for data collection in FUAs. In the next weeks partners will start with data collection and to establish freight quality partnerships in each FUA.
Event in Brussels
SULPiTER presented during the Petcha Kutcha session of the event to celebrate the 10 years of the OPEN ENLoCC Network. It was an opportunity to share the objectives and ambitions of SULPiTER with the main EU Networks, Regions and European Commission.

Taking into consideration the EC’s ambitious goal to obtain CO2 free city logistics by 2030 and the fact that by 2050 82% of Europeans will live in cities, it is necessary to consider urban freight issues in a new perspective – that of Functional Urban Areas (FUAs).
