Collaboration the key to clever urban logistics

The best logistics solutions are those that aren’t needed in the first place. That is the opinion of Professor Ani Melkonyan-Gottschalk, Managing Director of the Centre for Logistics and Transport (ZLV) at the University of Duisburg-Essen. She argues that individual logistics solutions alone are not enough to meet the challenges of urban infrastructure and that instead dual-purpose concepts hold the key to a sustainable logistics future.

Trailer refrigeration without direct emissions

Trailer refrigeration without direct emissions

The requirements for low-emission and quiet transport, particularly in inner-city logistics, are increasing. An efficient, autonomously driven trailer refrigeration solution from collaboration partners Thermo King and BPW is designed to sustainably improve the ecological balance. Field trials are currently underway and series production is scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of 2022.
