ALICE urban Logistics leadership team drafted the paper COVID-19: actions to prevent an ecological second wave in the Supply Chain

The main aspects addressed in the document were:

  • Supply chain regionalization.
  • e-commerce and home delivery booming: logistics solutions for local e-commerce services are needed.
  • Resilient, agile, adaptable supply networks: regaining supply chain sovereignty.
  • Accelerated digitalization.
  • Growing need for environmentally and socially responsible solutions.
  • Unusual lack of congestion and easier access to parking but will this last forever?.
  • Toward a paradigm shift: shared an interconnected logistics networks based on low and zero emission transport solutions.

In this workshop on 10th of March from 15.00 to 16.30 we welcome cities, researchers and practitioners to engage with us so we can review together the main contents of the document. The main questions addressed are:

  • Do you miss any critical impact not included in the document?
  • Which are the long lasting implications? What came to stay?
  • Which initiatives have been launched to overcome challenges and realize opportunities?
