Freight transport and logistics account for 20-30 % of transport-related emissions from urban areas, and the efficiency of operations suffer from congestion and lack of space. There is a need for developing and replicating logistics solutions for increased efficiency and reduced emissions and a need to better plan and organise city logistics.
The Logistics and Innovation group contributes to development and communication of research-based knowledge forming the basis for better planning of logistics as well as more efficient operations. We also support the development, testing and implementation of new technologies through research and demonstration projects. These projects are in cooperation with both industry and government, nationally and internationally.
