On Thursday 8th  and Friday 9th of October, Panteia organised the BESTFACT Joint Cluster Workshop on Synchro-modal Best Practices. The workshop was hosted together with STC (Shipping and Transport College) in Rotterdam.

This Joint Cluster Workshop dealt with the top issues, such as multi-modal chains, last-mile operations, policy, consolidation and collaboration, bringing together well-known representatives from the private and public sector in the areas of: • Urban Freight • Green Logistics and Co-modality • e-Freight

The BESTFACT workshop collected, analysed and disseminated state-of-the-art practices and innovations in freight logistics, contributing to the European transport policy targets: improving performance, promoting competitiveness and decreasing the environmental impacts. The workshop addressed these targets and field experts presented their best practices in the domains of urban freight, green logistics and co-modality and e-freight. Part of the program was a technical visit to the dynamic Port of Rotterdam, Maasvlakte II and Futureland. You can find the presentations here.
