Urban space is under pressure to accommodate needs from business and residents to meet increased demand for freight transport. Fast growing urban logistics, fuelled by booming of e-commerce, has challenged the conventional approach of managing urban space. To enable a more dynamic and integrated approach to plan and manage urban space, new tools and policy measures powered by collected data and models have been developed and tested to help cities reallocate urban space to meet current and future challenges. This webinar will invite stakeholders from the public and private sectors to share their views and practices, aiming to facilitate more collaboration between local authorities and logistics operators/business to better use of urban space, not only for efficiency of urban freight transport but also for better competitiveness of business and quality of life for citizens.
