Date:

22nd May 2008

Venue:

Svenska Mässan - Swedish Exhibition Centre
Gothenburg, Sweden

Summary

The possibility to get hold of the most important stakeholdes in Sweden (both as presenters and as participants) at the same time have been very difficult. And the preliminary dates and venues have been changes several times. Eventually, a feasible solution was found, which covered all aspects the BESTUFS project work and as a result the BESTUFS Handbook was promoted. The BESTUFS Handbook (in Swedish) was presented by me (see annex 2) at a session (in Swedish) at a Swedish Conference on Logistics and Transport in Gothenburg. The session in question was "Citylogistik - effektivare distribution i städer" and it takes place today between 09.00 and 12.00. The venue was the Swedish Exhibition Centre, Gothenburg, Sweden. The speakers are found on the first page and moderator of the session was Mr. Jacob Rheborg from Schenker Consulting. Some 50 participants (all related to the area of city logistics and from both authorities, private companies and academia) attended (see appendix 1) and about 100 copies of the Swedish BESTUFS Handbook was handed out - to the audience and in the nearby exhibition hall to selected people. As I had an agreement with the moderator to participate in the session, presenting the BESTUFS Handbook, I considered this event the BESTUFS National Seminar in Sweden. My The conclusion can be drawn - From the lively discussion at the end of the session and specifically with regard to the many questions addressing the BESTUFS Handbook - that the Swedish City Logistics community got a good understanding of the potential of the how the BESTUFS Handbook can be applied in future development of solutions for city logistics.
