On 30 May GPSM organised the Urban Freight Lab. In the workshop, urban freight innovations and their applicability in the developing countries context were discussed. It underlined the highly disruptive effect of smartphone-based solutions, small distribution hubs and cargo bikes. Furthermore, a key role of strong, city-level centralised authorities, consistent cycling and urban logistics master plans, proper incentives packages as well as freely accessible open data sources were expressed.
The workshop was another one in the series of GPSM-organised events and was hosted by the Impact Hub Berlin. A number of actors from businesses and consultancies related to the urban logistics sector attended the workshop, kicked-off by Justin Roth from Velogista and Enrico Howe from Modalyzer.
