Academic circles as well as governments have only grown the focus on urban logistics in recent years. This is because, on the one hand, more than half of the world's population lives in urban areas and they account for 70% of total GDP worldwide (UN, 2017). On the other hand, the urban logistics that brings the goods to these consumers and economic activities causes 20-30% of the total number of kilometers driven and 16-50% of the emissions in these areas (Dablanc, 2007). E-commerce and last-mile delivery surge enormously, but also the problems they bring to cities. Planning and managing the urban transport in urban areas under a dynamic context as today, logistics is key for city sustainable development.
This course provides the necessary background, knowledge and skills to do so. It is composed of two weeks. The first week is composed of an intensive series of interactive lectures. Topics are organised per day: introduction to urban logistics, the economics of the urban last mile, the policy framework for urban logistics initiatives, urban logistics innovation, and Big Data and Smart Cities in an urban logistics context. During the second week, the participants will elaborate a specific assignment in groups, under supervision, including intermediary meeting moments, question rounds and a presentation of results achieved.
