Action on urban freight consolidation

An inspirational conference that gives the floor to important stakeholders in city logistics to exchange operational experience, knowledge and innovations on European Urban Freight consolidation. Growing Green City Routes aims to invigorate participants with a unique programme that showcases actionable tools and information on urban freight consolidation. This conference will show you the way by using the practical approach of parallel action for industry and government known as the triple X and triple P vision.
