BESTFACT Joint Cluster Workshop on Synchro-modal Best Practices

Event date


The BESTFACT project invites you to its final International Workshop on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 of October 2015. The workshop is hosted together with STC (Shipping and Transport College) and will take place at its premises in Rotterdam.

In the last three years, BESTFACT collected, analysed and disseminated state-of-the-art practices and innovations in freight logistics, contributing to the European transport policy targets: improving performance, promoting competitiveness and decreasing the environmental impacts.

This final International Cluster Workshop will deal with the top issues, such as multi-modal chains, last-mile operations and consolidation and collaboration. Well-known representatives from the private and public sector will present current examples of best practices and results in the areas of:

Urban Freight
Green Logistics and Co-modality

Furthermore, it will present the main targets and challenges in freight transport and logistics and other high priority aspects in the fields of infrastructure, technology and organisation. Finally, a technical visit to the Port of Rotterdam will offer the opportunity to see some state-of-the-art multimodal solutions.
