Official launch: new urban consolidation centre pilot kicks off in Brussels
6 October 2014
Brussels Mobility, the Port of Brussels and TRI- CityDepot VIZOR are officially launching a urban consolidation centre pilot as part of the LaMiLo project on 10 October at 11.00am at the TIR Centre in Brussels, Belgium.
The Port of Brussels owned consolidation centre aims to help address reduce congestion in the city centre by making freight deliveries using environmentally friendly vehicles.
Speakers at the launch event will include Rudi Vervoort, Minister-President of the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region and Pascal Smet, Minister for Mobility and Public Works, will discuss the importance of a city distribution centre in the heart of the capital and on sustainable urban distribution, followed by a networking session and drinks.
The LaMiLo project (Last Mile Logistics) brings together partners from the North West Europe to test innovative and practical solutions to improve the delivery of the last mile of the supply chain. These deliveries are becoming more and more complex for operators and often responsible for pollution.
