SUGAR invites you to its workshop on 3 May in Brussels, where Good Practice Sites Emilia Romagna, Paris, London and Barcelona will share their experiences in the field of sustainable urban freight management and logistics, as well as present intermediate project findings.

These policy leverages, together with partnership building with logistics and transport operators, are the necessary ingredients to creating a tailored solution for more efficient urban freight transport management. Registration deadline extended until 29 April 2011!
