Academic circles as well as governments have only grown the focus on urban logistics in recent years. This is because, on the one hand, more than half of the world's population lives in urban areas and they account for 70% of total GDP worldwide (UN, 2017). On the other hand, the urban logistics that brings the goods to these consumers and economic activities causes 20-30% of the total number of kilometers driven and 16-50% of the emissions in these areas (Dablanc, 2007). Therefore, planning and managing the urban transport is key for a sustainable development of cities. These form the topic of the second Urban Logistics Summer School.
