We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the URBE – URban freight and BEhavior change Conference to be held in Rome, Italy, October 1st-2nd, 2015. Researchers, practitioners, politicians and public authorities are invited to use the conference as a platform for knowledge-exchange and transfer.
The conference is endorsed by: 1) Center of Excellence for Sustainable Urban Freight Systems, 2) WCTRS’ Freight Modelling (SIGB5), 3) Italian Society of Transport Economics and Logistics.
Aims and scope
URBE aims at identifying the behavioral game changers capable of modifying the present trends and pro-actively responding to the sustainability challenges urban freight distribution possess to modern cities given the role it plays in linking production, logistics and society.
The conference, taking a trans-disciplinary approach, focuses on the various alternatives capable of stimulating stakeholders’ behavioral change and engagement for a sustainable urban freight distribution. In more detail, the main topics relate to the behavioral pros and cons of: stakeholder involvement methodologies, advanced modeling techniques, innovative organizational structures, policy appraisal and evaluation techniques.
Expect to see more of the orange delivery van on Newcastle University campus – but many fewer conventional ones thanks to an innovative freight consolidation project.
Launched to improve the delivery of goods whilst reducing emissions and improving safety on the University campus, the contract will be serviced from Clipper Logistics’ facility at Wynyard Park, Billingham. It will use the electric vehicle (pictured) to deliver goods to the campus at the University’s designated nine drop-off zones. Until now, deliveries were made direct to campus across 226 delivery points and the new system will reduce the need for vans and lorries to enter University grounds.
