Logistics is a fundamental part of any company’s process, from the infrastructure available until the dynamics of contact with suppliers and the final disposal of products. A capillary network multimodal and with good quality are fundamental factors to the distribution of goods and services. Sustainability issues, however, must be considered in this dynamic: the great dependence of the road (in the Brazilian case), whose roads are far from a reasonable state of conservation, in the context of a country with continental dimensions, implies in a saturated and inefficient network with high emissions of greenhouse gases. The urban mobility scenario is not very different. The urban agglomerate, low road planning and the low-quality public transportation have turned cities into a chaotic environment for displacement. The cost of transit for citizens and businesses is rising because of the increasing miles of congestion. Given this scenario – the need to make the logistics network and urban mobility sustainable and efficient – the Logistics and Transports Working Group has as its focus the articulation of possible business solutions to the difficulties posed by multimodal transport and clean, efficient and secure fleets.
