Urban freight living labs need to operate in full recognition of the challenges that will shape the mobility of goods in urban areas in the future. These challenges are several: macro-economic, micro-economic, demographic, technological, societal, and legal.
To help CITYLAB cities implement and deploy their urban freight initiatives, a better understanding of these challenges is necessary. This is what the Observatory of strategic developments impacting urban logistics intends to do, by providing data and analysis on some of the most important, or less well known, trends that already shape the urban mobility of goods, or will shape it in the future.
The new 2018 version of the Observatory provides data and analyses on:
- Logistics sprawl;
- Service trips;
- Circular economy.
