The Center of Excellence for Sustainable Urban Freight Systems (CoE-SUFS) is dedicated to investigating new ways of infusing sustainability and efficiency into the way businesses send and receive goods. The new $4 million center, recognized as a Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF) Center of Excellence, is funded by the VREF through its Future Urban Transport research program.
The Peer-to-Peer Exchange Program is designed to share global best practice cases and real world examples of sustainable urban freight systems. Topics include: logistics sprawl, off-hour deliveries, urban consolidation centers, cargo cycles and more.
This program is open to anyone with a professional or a personal interest in freight transportation issues. You can find an overview of the program, and the webinars available, by clicking here.
