Transferability of urban logistic concepts and practices from a world wide perspective

Objective

TURBLOG_WW is designed from a complementary perspective for the work that is being promoted at the EU level by addressing urban logistics from a wider (geographical) perspective, focusing upon a worldwide level (in general) and on Brazil and Peru (in particular). Our main goal is to extend, expand and transfer the existent knowledge to other countries and thus effectively contribute for the overall objective of extending the research and knowledge dissemination between EU and Latin America.
For that, the project will act as a coordination platform, gathering the experience to identify, generate and assess best practice solutions on urban freight initiatives, through the conduction of a set of case studies (which will be undertaken to identify best practices and to assess the lasting effects and impacts of previously projects and tools and to compare experiences between Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa) and the promotion of workshops and site visits, based on which it is aimed to facilitate the exchange of information, raise awareness, disseminate and assess the potential to transfer and promote research results at the national, European and intercontinental levels.
To ensure the accomplishment of that objective, TURBLOG_WW is organised along the following main lines: Network Coordination, Selected case studies, Business concepts and business models, Transferability , Urban logistic guidelines, Thematic workshops and Overall dissemination activities.

Overall the core mission of TURBLOG_WW and its role in EU research can be synthesised as to put together past urban logistics experiences, analyse them carefully, extract and disseminate valuable information, supporting ongoing and future related initiatives and contribute to its transferability to Brazilian and Peruvian contexts (and through that for the social inclusion and regional integration in Latin America countries).
