    Hi Jessie:
    Thanks for sending me the invite for the webinar on Nov.11 to which I have responded.
    I have recently conducted research vis-a-vis a literature review on optimization of transportation capacity utilization specific to the problem of empty travel of trucks, under the auspices of Wilfrid Laurier University (Dr. Michael Haughton’s team). My findings thus far have lead me to the growing concern of congestion and the huge imbalance in commodity flow in/out of urban areas–a condition that is expected to continue to balloon with the anticipated growth in the urban populations.
    Many logistics and transportation providers are looking for solutions that require the collaboration and cooperation of municipalities, private corporations and industry as it relates to consolidation centres, co-loading of shipments, and freight matching in order to minimize GHG emissions, fuel consumption and associated costs–all of which are necessary for sustainable cities.
    My question to you is whether or not you (Meeting of the Minds and partners) have any experts looking at this area of concern since efficient transportation is vital to every aspect of life? Is it part of the new ISO evaluation?

    Thank you.
