Sustainable Cities: Urban Logistics
The demand for same and next day delivery, along with the rise in popularity for e-commerce, presents challenges to transport network, congestion levels and warehousing.
In this podcast by the Industry and Parliament Trust, we discuss with Arne Strauss, Associate Professor, Warwick Business School, the short- and long-term innovations that might be able to increase overall effectiveness whilst ensuring the industry is environmentally sustainable.
COCTA wins prestigious air traffic management award
Contenders were shortlisted and a winning entry in each category was selected by an independent panel of experienced judges from the SESAR Deployment Manager, EUROCONTROL, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers' Associations (IFATCA), and IHS Markit.
Keynote talk at Westminster
The Industry and Parliament Trust has invited Dr Arne Strauss as keynote speaker alongside Ian Clough, Managing Director, Network Logistics and Transport for DHL Supply Chain, to an event at Westminster on sustainable cities and urban logistics on 20 May 2019. The event is part of a series that brings together senior decion makers from industry, parliamentarians, and academics.
Topic: The World Bank estimates that 83% of the United Kingdom’s population lives in urban environments. As this figure rises the logistical networks required to service inhabitants, businesses and visitors become more complex. Coupled with the rise of e-commerce and consumer and business demand for same or next day delivery, it presents a major challenge to transport networks, congestion levels and warehousing. With the smooth running of urban logistical networks essential to the functioning of the United Kingdom economy, what are the short- and long-term innovations that could secure effectiveness?
