Surflogh is an international collaboration, within the Interreg North Sea Region VB Programme, prioritizing the development of green transport solutions in urban areas. Partners from the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK and Sweden jointly aim to develop cargo hubs that are really ‘smart’, efficient and sustainable.
As the Surflogh project approaches midterm, it is time to bring each other up to speed. The project partners want to share and exchange progress and ideas on smart, sustainable solutions for last mile delivery with our stakeholders from the transport and retail sectors, urban developers, universities and government authorities.
The Mid Term Conference will focus on the theme of ‘Sustainable City Logistics in Action
Modern issues like increased online consumerism, with a 24-hour delivery promise, mean our cities are becoming more and more congested. Light Goods Vehicle (LGVs) are a significant contributor to congestion and emissions today in our cities. These crucial services are creating multiple, negative impacts on the liveability of our cities.
Whose problem is this and how can we take steps to solve some of the complex issues involved in current developments regarding freight and logistics? As an international collaboration, SURFLOGH aims to green ‘last mile/first mile’ delivery, developing cargo hubs that are really ‘smart’, efficient and sustainable.
SURFLOGH aims to improve the role of logistics hubs in the network of urban logistics through connecting long-distance freight transport and last mile distribution in strategically located urban freight centres.
