Have you ever wondered about the journey of the morning coffee you brew or buy from a store; how did it reach from the coffee estates to your cup? Global freight demand is estimated to triple between 2015 and 2050 and the ability to move goods efficiently has become the lifeblood of economic development, particularly in cities which generate over 80 percent of global GDP and an estimated 75 percent of global emissions (ITF 2019). Freight transport forms the backbone of today's global economy. This panel will discuss trending solutions in the field of urban logistics and the need to explore the sector which otherwise is neglected compared to passenger transport. EcoLogistics project initiated by ICLEI has conducted studies in 9 cities in Argentina, Colombia and India. Local governments’ representative will discuss the status quo from project cities.
