02 June 2023 - Published by Tom Pauwels
On June 2, 2023, project partner Logistics Initiative Hamburg had the pleasure of hosting the AVATAR Webinar: How do Hamburg’s transport & sustainability strategies align with the AVATAR concept of zero emission urban inland waterway transport? - An analysis.

Mrs. Claudia Schlösser, in cooperation with the Logistics Initiative Hamburg and the AVATAR project, presented the results of her research: An analysis of synergies and conflicts of goals between the AVATAR project and strategies from the areas of Last Mile delivery, sustainability and mobility transition relevant for the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. The study was part of the AVATAR project's Work Package 6. 

On the basis of a qualitative content analysis (using 16 policy documents), it has been concluded that the AVATAR project can make a strong contribution to Hamburg's agenda. As well the City of Hamburg as the AVATAR project focus on sustainable urban freight distribution, avoiding emissions and nuisance for local residents. It has also been noted that biggest barriers consist of infrastructural issues, bureaucracy and fragmented responsibilities.
