Rotterdam Smart Logistics
The city of Rotterdam, like other cities, will have to deal with a zero emission zone in 2025. What is the role of the government in this?
The city of Rotterdam, like other cities, will have to deal with a zero emission zone in 2025. This will have consequences for the accessibility of the city. Not only for people mobility, but also for logistics. Electrification of vehicles is of course a priority in order to achieve the zero emission targets. In addition, however, the smart combination and robotisation of loads, the optimal loading of vehicles and cooperation in the sector also make a positive contribution to the achievement of the targets. Self-driving vehicles (which have almost always been electrically powered) will have a positive impact (also taking into account the growth in urban distribution and the shortage of drivers). The big question here is what is the role of the government in this, in addition to setting up an emission zone and developing policy around, for example, window times for urban distribution?
