The Urban Logistics Green Deal brings together a community of pioneering organisations with a shared ambition of moving faster with the transition to greener logistics in Brussels. This call for collaborative projects is one of the supports offered to green deal members and aims to generate new partnerships with existing and potential signatories.
The Urban Logistics Green Deal has the following aims: • stimulate the Brussels-Capital Region’s Urban Logistics Green Deal • support a minimum of 3 projects aimed at reducing logistics emissions • fund selected projects to the tune of €10,000 to €300,000 per project • support selected projects during the 2024 calendar year • support selected projects with the expertise of the Mobilise research group
Brussels launched the Green Deal Urban Logistics in April 2023 as part of its ‘Shifting economy‘ strategy and the ‘Good Move‘ plan. A credible alliance of public and private like-minded groups and organisations, the aim is to speed up measures aimed towards a less polluting logistics sector. Freight and logistics transport has many negative consequences, for example air pollution, congestion and road accidents. The Urban Logistics Green Deal aims to find an ecological solution by addressing the transport and storage of goods based upon measures that include: promotion of multimodality, connection between logistics players, development of local logistics real estate or logistics hubs, optimisation of deliveries and orders in large companies, and the use of cargo bikes or electrification of vehicles.

In addition to the Brussels ambitions and commitments, each of the signatory organisations individually commits to implementing their central measures by 2025. Details of signatory organisations and their commitments can be found in the Urban Logistics Green Deal convention.
