Vital Nodes at VREF conference in Gothenburg

Posted: 23rd October 2018

On Friday 19 October 2018 the Vital Nodes team, represented by Kevin van der Linden (Rijkswaterstaat) and Tomas Holmlund (Trafikverket), organised a session on the VREF conference on urban freight in Gothenburg.

An enthusiastic group of approximately 30 professionals from all over de world got to know the Vital Nodes approach and discussed freight challenges on urban/local level, linking to regional and national/international level.

During the discussions, dynamic planning and optimising the freight processes using the potential of barges on low costs, the importance to define the roles of urban nodes, the facilitation of (the overlay in) freight flows and prioritizing within freight planning came accross.

Interesting insights with an additional positive outcome via the connections that have been made between the participants during the session
