Logistics and Goods


Freight transport and urban logistics have significant impacts on the good functioning of cities and urban networks.


In a context where the option for road clearly dominates, there are still many opportunities to be explored for promoting greater modal rebalancing in freight transport, not only taking into account short/long-distance movements, but also in last mile connections.


Thus, it essential to act in the logistics sector to promote integrated and potentially disruptive solutions that promote the decarbonisation of the transport sector.


In the projects in which we have participated at national and international level, we have sought to identify the best practices of regulation and management of urban logistics, as well as of the urban network supplies.


TIS has a great experience in the evaluation of logistic networks and infrastructure, as well as on strategic planning and business models of ports and logistic terminals.
