Digitalisering in de stadslogistiek - GDZES in de MRA Meet-up#6

Featured image

Op dinsdag 23 maart organiseren we de Green Deal ZES MRA Meetup #6 en zetten we samen vervolgstappen op weg naar slimme en schone stadslogistiek in de regio in 2025. Deze keer staat digitalisering in de stadslogistiek centraal. Of je nu actief bent als verlader, logistiek dienstverlener, voertuigproducent, ontwikkelaar van logistieke concepten, onderzoeker of beleidsambtenaar; om digitalisering van de stadslogistiek kunnen we niet langer heen!

Het belooft een interessant programma te worden waarin we opnieuw kennis en ervaring kunnen delen, we van elkaar kunnen leren en we je een netwerk bieden om nieuwe coalities te smeden.

Vraagstukken die in elk geval aan de orde komen, zijn:

  • Hoe kunnen we door digitalisering in de stadslogistiek de doorstroming van voertuigen optimaliseren?
  • Hoe kunnen we de stadslogistiek slim en duurzaam inrichten door vracht(data) onderling uit te wisselen?

Deze vraagstukken en mogelijke oplossingsrichtingen zullen worden ingeleid door Walther Ploos van Amstel, lector City Logistics aan de HvA.
