SURFLOGH on Tour – spreading the word
The broad question Dr Cowie, a lecturer in Transport Economics, was asking was whether or not more proactive policy frameworks result in more commercially successful green urban freight initiatives.
Jonathan’s paper was part of a specific logistics stream which ran throughout the whole three days of the conference. This international exchange of knowledge, with a very well-informed audience, was extremely valuable. Other expert presentations in the sessions included best practice in urban consolidation centres, the potential use and practical barriers relating to drone delivery, and the development of methodologies to estimate urban freight flows. These subjects are all strongly connected to the SURFLOGH project and the consortium can profit from the shared learnings on sustainable logistics solutions also noted during the illuminating session discussions.

SURFLOGH in Action
As a consequence of his presentation in Milan, Jonathan has been invited to submit a paper based on this for a special issue of the Journal of Trade and Shipping, which will publish a collection of the best papers from the European Transport Conference logistics streams.
Under the caption 'SURFLOGH in Action' a number of insightful documents have been produced with the input and colloboration of the SURFLOGH consortium.
