EcoLogistics initiative

EcoLogistics promotes transportation of goods by giving priority to health, safety,  low-emission, and people-centered urban development. It encourages circular and regional economies while limiting the impact of freight transport.

Global freight demand will triple between 2015 and 2050 based on the trajectory of current demand (ITF Transport Outlook, 2019). The increasing transport of goods presents unique problems and challenges to our cities, including congestion, air pollution, and accidents.

EcoLogistics promotes transportation of goods by giving priority to health, safety,  low-emission, and people-centered urban development. It encourages circular and regional economies while limiting the impact of freight transport. Through the EcoLogistics initiative, ICLEI aims to transform the urban logistics scene in cities through effective regulatory, planning and administrative instruments at all levels of government. By highlighting urban freight as a priority area for local, regional and national governments, ICLEI strengthens institutional capacity through multi-stakeholder participation and encourages a multilevel governance approach to urban freight policy.
