9th International Workshop on Sustainable Road Freight: Resilient transitions to net zero freight transport systems
The Centre for Sustainable Road Freight would like to invite interested parties to a virtual workshop on Sustainable Road Freight Transport.
There is now a widespread consensus on the urgency of global transition to net zero freight transport systems. However, there is still uncertainty around which competing low carbon propulsion technologies are going to become dominant, and how logistics operations would need to be adapted to facilitate the large-scale adoption of these technologies. In addition, the global environment has become increasingly turbulent with natural and man-made disasters occurring more frequently and with increasing magnitude of impact. Extreme weather events, pandemics, and military conflicts (among other crises) not only pose a significant threat to individual supply chains, but also delay and divert resources from the transition to net zero freight transport systems.
This year’s workshop will focus on resilient transitions to net zero freight transport systems. Contributions about ways to accelerate progress in relation to sustainable road freight in all parts of the world are welcome, to help define a robust roadmap to a net zero future.
We invite presentations on ways to improve the sustainability of freight transport, particularly those related to the factors shaping the net zero transition process
Due to current circumstances the conference will be web-based, presented over a period of three days from 08:00 to 13:00 each day GMT (That will be 10:00 to 15:00 in South Africa, 13:30 to 18:30 in India and 16:00 to 21:00 in China).
