On 16-17 November 2010, the European Commission and the Belgian Presidency hosted a conference on urban freight transport and logistics in Brussels. The conference brought together high-level representatives from the European institutions and from key stakeholder associations to debate on sustainable solutions to urban freight in Europe's cities.
This event was foreseen in Action 19 (urban freight transport) of the Action Plan on Urban Mobility, as adopted by the European Commission on 30 September 2009, and fell within the framework of the programme of the Belgian Presidency to promote innovative and sustainable transport solutions for Europe.
The conference was structured to cover several key aspects of urban freight transport and logistics, which were discussed in six thematic workshops.
