The eleventh International Conference on City Logistics will be held at Valamar Dubrovnik President hotel in Dubrovnik, Croatia on June 12-14 2019. Urban freight transport has become an important issue in urban planning. There are many challenges and problems relating to increasing levels of traffic congestion, environmental impacts and energy conservation.
In addition, freight carriers are expected to provide higher levels of service with lower costs. To address these complicated and difficult problems, numerous city logistics schemes have been proposed and implemented in several cities, including: cooperative freight transport systems, advanced information systems, public freight terminals and the regulation of load factors. City logistics schemes are relatively new concepts that are aimed at increasing the efficiency of urban freight transport systems as well as reducing traffic congestion and impacts on the environment. However, new visions, technologies, and policy measures need to be developed and studied before city logistics schemes can be effectively deployed.
This conference aims to provide an opportunity to exchange knowledge, experience and perspectives on city logistics and urban freight transport. Recent developments in creating visions, technologies and policy measures that facilitate the deployment of various city logistics schemes will be discussed. Since city logistics schemes have already been implemented in several cities, a review of the performance of these schemes will also be presented. Also, an overview of the development and application of several mathematical models and effects of e-commerce on urban freight transport will be given.
The conference also provides an opportunity to discuss future initiatives of the Institute for City Logistics that are aimed at promoting international research collaboration and information exchange.
