Dear Participants,

to register for 4th International Conference Green Cities – Green Logistics for Greener Cities go to the link below:


This year two workshop sessions will be organized. There will be two parallel workshops per both sessions. During the registration you will be asked to choose one workshop per session (or none). Below you can find the details regarding each workshop:

Session 1:

Workshop 1/1. Urban freight transport and the cities

Description: Through four guiding questions, we will discuss the importance of urban freight transportation for cities, the challenges to develop public policies for UFT, challenges to implement city logistics solutions and to identify those responsible for implementing the solutions.

Coach: Leise Kelli de Oliveira

Leise Kelli de Oliveira is an Associate Professor in the Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil). She develops research focused on urban freight transport in Brazilian cities. Her research motivation is to change the mind of the stakeholders about the importance of UFT to the economic development of the Brazilian cities.

Workshop 2/1. Electric vehicles for city logistics – behavioural approach

Description: This workshop will involve exploring how behavioural choice modelling and behaviour change concepts can be utilised for developing initiatives for promoting the implementation of Electric Freight Vehicles. Participants will work on identifying and evaluating policies for government and companies for increasing the use of electric freight vehicles in urban areas.

Coach: Russell Thompson

Russell Thompson has been active in City Logistics research for over 20 years. He has participated in numerous urban freight studies in Australia, Japan and Europe. Russell has a background in Mathematics and Transport Engineering. His current research interests include parcel lockers, collaborative freight systems, Physical Internet and on-line auction systems.

Session 2:

Workshop 2/1. Potential of E-Mobility in Urban Logistics – Exploring the EUFAL information

Description: In the EUFAL project, an information platform has been developed to demonstrate the potential of E-mobility in urban logistics. We offer the opportunity to explore and discuss the EUFAL platform.

Coaches: Anika Lobig, Dilay Çelebi, Jürgen Zajicek

Anika Lobig studied industrial engineering and works at DLR as a project manager. She has carried out several studies on the potential of e-vehicles in urban commercial traffic. Currently she is leading the EUFAL project, in which an information platform and several tools for users of e-vehicles have been developed.

Dilay Çelebi is a Professor of Management Engineering at Istanbul Technical University. Her research interest include transportation planning, international logistics, and management of logistics operations.

Workshop 2/2. Risk analysis tool for urban freight transport’s measures’ implementation

Description: The problem of risk in the area of urban freight transport concerns on the one hand individual measures implemented in this area, and on the other the entire freight transport system in the city. For the purposes of this workshop risk will be considered from the perspective of threats that impede the realisation of UFT measures. The tool for risk analysis for urban freight transport’s measures’ implementation will be presented during the workshop.

Coach: Maja Kiba-Janiak

Kiba-Janiak is associate professor at the Wrocław University of Economics and Business, at the Department of Strategic Management and Logistics at the Faculty of Management. She participated in several projects financed by the national and European institutions mainly related to city logistics’ strategy and urban freight transport. Currently, she is the head of a research project funded by the National Science Center entitled Sustainable city last mile logistics and e-commerce returns. Perspective of various groups of stakeholders. In 2019, she participated in a three-month research internship at the University of Melbourne, as part of which she conducted research on urban logistics (the project was financed by the National Agency for Academic Exchange under the Bekker program).
