BESTUFS II national seminar in Hungary

bullet

Theme: Actual questions of the city-logistics in Hungary

bullet

Venue: Közlekedési Múzeum, Városligeti krt. 11. Budapest

bullet

Date: 11 February 2008

The European Co-ordination Action on “BEST Urban Freight Solutions” (BESTUFS) is funded by the European Commission (DG Transport and Energy) and is active from 2000 until 2008. The main objective is to identify, describe and disseminate best practices, success criteria and bottlenecks of urban freight transport solutions.

One important outcome of the work is a Good Practice Guide which is translated and printed in 17 European languages and thus complements the rich material in English made available by BESTUFS (www.bestufs.net). Experience has shown that the most active cities implementing freight transport innovations tend to be the country capitals or the largest metropolis. These conurbations have the resources to access support for innovative transport solutions, to participate in city networks and to exchange knowledge and experiences with each other. An important objective of BESTUFS and the Good Practice Guide is to reach also small and medium sized cities since they are comparatively isolated from a European perspective.

Based on the information given in the Good Practice Guide BESTUFS is now organising a national urban freight seminar in Hungary. The seminar addresses city logistics solutions, both on general and local national level and thereby involving national project demonstrations or peculiarities. A special focus will be given to small and medium sized cities. The language of the seminar will be Hungarian and the participation is free of charge.

The movement of goods in urban areas is well organised by private companies whilst recently European municipalities have started to develop policies to change urban transport towards sustainable solutions. In this area of tension between established traditional transport structures and the objectives of cleaner, safer and more attractive Cities there are many innovations taking place European wide. The interest in being informed about interesting solutions and experiences in city logistics is growing. The BESTUFS Conference will highlight recent innovative examples and will present main development directions and common problems faced as seen by transport operators, public bodies, retailers and domain experts. The Conference is non-profit and financially. supported by the European Commission.

On Friday afternoon we will visit Schenker Distribution centre or Warsaw Distribution centre. Both distribution centres are located outside of the Warsaw city. Delegates of the conference will choose either one distribution centre or the other to visit.

A new project about transport modelling is stared!
