February 1, 2023 — How cities and companies shape urban delivery in the coming decade will have important implications for businesses and communities.

In January 2022, we launched the Urban Freight 2030 Project to create a collective vision for the urban freight system over the next decade.

As a diverse group of stakeholders from across the urban freight landscape — shippers, retailers, tech providers, property owners, and manufacturers — the Urban Freight Lab is best suited to envision a system where goods movement is sustainable, safe, cost-effective, accessible, and equitable.

We are applying our expertise — and that of our members, partners, and subject matter experts —  in the Goods Movement 2030 Blog. In a series of posts, we are exploring emerging trends, groundbreaking issues, and the latest research, asking big questions, analyzing implications, and proposing our own future course of action.

As a first step we identified four topics surfacing in urban freight and six priorities around which we hope to see progress by 2030. Topics for exploration are: Electrification, Digital Transformation, Planning Streets for People and Goods, and Microfreight.
