On June 19 2018, a joint Final Conference for CIVIC and DenCity will be held at Lindholmen Conference Center in Göteborg Sweden about construction logistics. The theme of the day: From vision, through construction, to transport solutions for future dense cities. The day will include exciting results from the projects and opportunities for discussion and networking.
Current logistics and transportation systems include heterogeneous fleets consisting of common internal combustion engine vehicles as well as other types of vehicles using “green” technologies, e.g., plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles (EVs).
Transportation is one of the essential services in cities that contribute to the quality of life. As a result, efficient methods for transport planning have become increasingly important. Decision makers have considered collaborative strategies to reduce the overall cost of the supply process and to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of urban logistics systems.

The uptake of electric vehicle (EV) technology appears to be progressing faster than expected, with industry forecasts routinely being revised upwards. This is in part the result of strong policy stimulus from the Chinese and Western governments, but is also increasingly due to favorable economics as battery costs have tumbled in recent years.
It is an inspiring dream image of the future, but also a vision that is slowly turning into reality. The use of human-powered vehicles in urban distribution is increasing, but how should we adapt the city to accommodate these newcomers?
The Final 50 Feet program looks at methods to improve delivery and the last 50 feet of the supply chain, such as loading areas, traffic control and street design. The urban freight lab will pilot low-cost and high-value actions to optimize operations of goods.
