Transport Research Arena (TRA) Conference 2024

Transport Research Arena (TRA) will take place in Dublin from Monday 15th April to Thursday 18 April 2024. TRA, which takes place every two years, is the largest European transport and mobility event and brings together policymakers, researchers, academia and industry representatives, to discuss how research, innovation and technology can work together to shape our current and future transport and mobility systems.

Angela Núñez González, SENATOR project coordinator at Correos, will be presenting the project in Special Session 2.3, “Innovation in Urban Logistics: Public and Private Sectors Thriving Together”, on April 16th, from 9:45 to 11:00. She will will offer valuable insights into SENATOR’s journey, highlighting our experiences, successes, and lessons learned in urban logistics.

SENATOR will be featured alongside Civitas Initiative partners, including the URBANE Project, DISCO Project, GREEN-LOG Project, LEAD Project, and DECARBOMILE Project.

This session promises insightful discussions and collaborative efforts as we explore innovative solutions for zero-emission urban freight transport. Together, we aim to foster a shared vision for sustainable urban transportation.

In the face of unprecedented challenges, a proactive approach is essential to address future urban logistics challenges. EU-funded R&I projects, including SENATOR, have engaged with city authorities, logistics service providers, and innovation developers to establish living labs. Furthermore, these living labs serve as dynamic environments where businesses and cities collaborate, utilizing innovative solutions such as digital twins, the Physical Internet, and zero-emission vehicles to enhance efficiency and achieve zero-emission freight transport.
