WORKSHOP #3 – Urban logistics tools and methods

WORKSHOP #3 – Urban logistics tools and methods

Would you like to learn about the concept of ‘urban dynamics’ as a tool for shaping the infrastructure of the city of Poznan? What kinds of risk does the anticipated increase of the need for the elements of urban infrastructure pose? In view of those challenges, let us consider how to reduce the road traffic in historical districts of Poznań using e.g. the sustainable city logistics potential. Let us also take a look at the passenger information system, define the challenges and propose solutions for the optimization thereof.
