Welcome to SURFLOGH's webspace. SURFLOGH is a project co-funded by the North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020.

Core challenge of the project is to achieve a more efficient cargo distribution in urban areas, and thereby maintain efficiency in long distance transport. To promote efficient logistics sustainably, the focus is on optimizating the interaction between hubs ande urban logistics sysetm in smaller and medium-sized cities and city networks.

Surflogh is innovative in that it introduces a 'system and supply chain approach'  in developing these hubs, as apposed to past projects that focussed on location -  making them really 'smart'.  By establishing city labs a transnational platform is created, bringing various actors together to exchange knowledge, work on new pilot projects and implement the results within policy stategies and urban logistic systems.
