CoE-SUFS Regional Workshops

VREF Center of Excellence for Sustainable Urban Freight Systems (CoE-SUFS) is organizing a series of regional workshops with the purpose of introducing the CoE, educating researchers and practitioners about City Logistics, urban freight issues, and potential research projects.

So far, six workshops have been held; in India (Chennai, New Delhi and Mumbai), Brazil (Sao Paulo), Colombia (Bogotá and Barranquilla) and Canada (Toronto). These workshops have been extremely well received and have had an impact on the corresponding jurisdictions, e.g. in India the workshop resulted in the first Freight Trip Generation study in the country. In Brazil, inspired by the regional workshop, DHL decided to fund a small study of Off-hour delivery services in Sao Paulo.

Upcoming events include Mexico City, Mexico (10/2014), Santiago, Chile (10/2014) and Melbourne and Sidney, Australia (11/2014).
