What people are saying about the conversations we spark at Smart Transport Conference...
“Great for examples of what is happening in transport”
“Practical opinion rather than theoretical”
“Allows constructive but challenging conversations”
Join senior public and private sector transport leaders at the two-day Virtual Smart Transport Conference to contribute to pivotal discussions on:
A local authority perspective on urban air quality, what the authority has done to date, future plans and what support cities need in addressing future challenges. Plus how to fund initiatives.
The challenges customers who operate in urban areas face (particularly delivery companies/van operators) and how companies can work with them to lower emissions. Plus, a look ahead to future solutions e.g. replacing vans with e-cargo bikes etc. for last mile deliveries?
How vehicle charging companies can work with cities and businesses within those cities to address air quality.
How cities can be re-designed to be ‘people friendly’ - encouraging walking and cycling rather than car us.
A case study of introducing a 15-minute neighbourhood and the implications of doing that for freight and distribution networks.
Examples of how the private sector can support cities with place-based solutions
How the movement of goods can be decarbonised. How cities and national Government can work in partnership with the privately-operated freight sector.
Initiatives the private sector has introduced outside cities e.g. car share/car clubs. How to make the business model work and achieve modal shift outside cities.
