The NOVELOG Barcelona Workshop ‘New approaches to urban goods deliveries on-street and off-street’ is the third of six NOVELOG city workshops. It includes a site visit of one of the micro-platforms that are part of the NOVELOG pilot demonstration.

Like the previous ones (in Graz and Rome) it brings together experts, researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their experiences on solutions implemented, and to examine possibilities of transferability and solution adoption by other cities, identify successful business models and evaluation of interventions.

The objectives of this 3rd NOVELOG workshop include:

  • Sharing in more detail the case study “AREADUM APP” that Barcelona is testing in the project.
  • Updating the report on Barcelona’s approach to piloting micro-platforms, involving the various stakeholders.
  • Taking stock of smart city initiatives in the city of Barcelona and how they fit with the planning work of the Mobility Services Department.
  • Taking a look at developments with last-mile deliveries in Europe: the guest city Brussels has a new initiative, CityDepot, after the success of the LaMilo project.

 

The first session comprises presentations and discussion of the APP (on-street delivery space management). The second session centres upon the development of the off-street solution of “micro-platforms”. In the afternoon, participants can visit one of the micro-platforms that are part of the NOVELOG pilot demonstration. These actions form part of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) of the Barcelona City Council. The following link provides an introduction to this statutory planning tool:
