The Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF) Center of Excellence for Sustainable Urban Freight Systems (CoE-SUFS) is pleased to announce the first of its Peer-to-Peer Exchange Programs on August 15, 2013 at 11AM EST.
The Peer-to-Peer Exchange Program is designed to share global best practice cases and real world examples of sustainable urban freight systems. This program is open to anyone with a professional or a personal interest in freight transportation issues.
The inaugural Peer-to-Peer Exchange will be a webinar, Lessons from the Off-Hour Delivery Program in New York City, highlighting the innovative project that seeks to increase off-hour deliveries and to decrease congestion, make the movement of goods more reliable, increase urban livability, and provide a better business environment. Ms. Stacey Hodge, the Director of NYCDOTs Office of Freight Mobility, and Dr. Jose Holguin-Veras the Director of the CoE-SUFS, will lead the discussion, with introductory remarks provided by NYCDOT leadership.
