Last December, during the first Cilog, three personalities were charged with developing recommendations for the launch of a national strategy for sustainable urban logistics. While the results of the work are expected by this summer, a progress report was presented to the government last week.

During the first Cilog last December, the ministers Jean-Baptiste Djebbari and Agnès Pannier-Runacher had charged three personalities to develop recommendations for the launch of a national strategy for sustainable urban logistics.

The results of the work of Anne-Marie Idrac (president of France Logistique), Jean-Jacques Bolzan (deputy mayor of Toulouse) and Anne-Marie Jean (secretary general of the CSNP) are expected by this summer, but a progress report was presented to the government last week.

A new survey on urban transport

The document recommends, among other things, the launch of a new survey on urban goods transport, the creation of open data platforms listing traffic and parking regulations and their integration into traffic applications, and the implementation of shared digital tools to optimize urban logistics flows.

It also calls for an "incentive tax on land" for urban logistics areas and for urban logistics to be taken into account to a greater extent in the SRADDETs (regional plans for development, sustainable development and territorial equality), the SCOTs (territorial cohesion plans) and communal and inter-communal PLUs.
