City logistics aims to balance the economic growth and environmental friendliness, safety and security in cities. This workshop is to present recent advances of the research in modelling, planning and implementing city logistics and discuss issues and innovative solutions associated with urban freight transport for sustainable and liveable cities. We highlight the use of emerging technologies including ICT (Information and Communication technology), ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems), IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), autonomous vehicles, and robots for city logistics. We discuss developing policies for city logistics considering the collaborations and coordination among stakeholders who are involved in urban freight transport, focusing on the data sharing between the public and private sectors. As many cities have implemented policy measures of city logistics, we discuss case studies and perspectives on sustainable urban freight transport from different countries in Europe and Japan. We finally propose the future perspectives on city logistics for sustainable and liveable cities based on the presentations and discussions in the workshop.
