About the speakers
Pierre Camilleri is a PhD candidate at the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport (IFSTTAR) and at Renault. He investigates constraints, opportunities and prospects for electric vehicles in urban freight activities in Europe. He graduated with high honors at the French engineering school École polytechnique (major in applied mathematics) and specialized in transportation with a Research Master “Transport and Mobility“ at the University of Paris-East. The PhD follows an end of study internship at Renault about the old freight vehicles used for own account, with a special focus on the fruits and vegetables sector.
Emine Zehra Akgün is a PhD student at the Transport Research Institute, Edinburgh Napier University. Her main area of interest is urban consolidation centers with a particular focus on using supportive policies to make consolidation centers more feasible. Previously, she has carried research in investigating the use of product and service systems in road transport, and supply chain integration in product development.
Fredrik Cederstav has a M.Sc. from Chalmers University of Technology in mechanical engineering and is now working with research projects within Urban Transport Solutions and future services at Volvo AT&R. Fredrik is responsible for the truck delivery part of the DenCity project and has senior experience in project management from major Volvo Trucks vehicle projects. He has also been leading projects within refuse handling, autonomous truck prestudies and solutions for both Off-Peak and noise reduction projects and protypes during 2013-2016.
