Antwerp Summer School on Urban Logistics

What: Antwerp Summer School on Urban Logistics

When: August 19-30, 2019

Where: University of Antwerp, Belgium

University of Antwerp Department of Transport and Regional Economics presents an intensive immersion into the world of urban logistics, based on an introductory module covering all aspects of urban logistics (week 1) and an optional assignment preparation week (week 2) focusing on innovation and sustainability in the Industry in all its facets.

Academic circles as well as governments have only grown the focus on urban logistics in recent years. This is because, on the one hand, more than half of the world's population lives in urban areas and they account for 70% of total GDP worldwide (UN, 2017). On the other hand, the urban logistics that brings the goods to these consumers and economic activities causes 20-30% of the total number of kilometers driven and 16-50% of the emissions in these areas (Dablanc, 2007). Therefore, planning and managing the urban transport is key for a sustainable development of cities. These form the topic of the second Urban Logistics Summer School.
