EcoLogistics Training for Sustainable Cities through Integrated Carbon Reduction

The EcoLogistics Community Chair Office of Taoyuan City today (11th) partnered with Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), the largest sustainable city organization in the world, to host the “2020 EcoLogistics Workshop.” Public and private organizations were invited to take part in the workshop on “Green, Smart, and Shared Logistics for Future Cities.” A vigorous discussion on Taiwanese start-ups and pioneering enterprises, low-carbon last-mile distribution, Internet of Vehicles, reusable packaging, green supply chain, smart robots, smart dispatching system, smart platforms, smart wearables, green warehousing, and sustainable logistics took place to develop innovative urban logistics or supply chain solutions that are eco-friendly, low-carbon, energy-saving, smart and inclusive. The workshop aimed to optimize the implementation of these solutions in the real-world and provide a benchmark for the cradle-to-cradle model of sustainable cities.
Taoyuan City’s Deputy Secretary-General and Director of the EcoLogistics Office Chun-ming Chiu noted that the city is now actively carrying out inter-agency inventories, consolidating and expanding projects, developing policies for logistics parks, smart transportation, green building, renewable energy, low-carbon transport, and waste disposal, as well as supporting the implementation of ecologistics and innovative solutions by vendors in Taoyuan City. Breakthroughs have already been achieved in Taiwan’s logistics industry and supply chain in response to rapid changes in consumption and business models. All kinds of smart technology and solutions have started blossoming. Chiyoda Taiwan in particular showcased its Follow Me transportation robot on the day. Director Chiu did not run the robot through its paces and interacted with it to demonstrate what the future of smart transportation will be like. He also suggested that it can be deployed as a logistics solution in the Daxi retail district as a trial. The EcoLogistics Office will leverage a variety of strategic cooperation models, sharing of resources and facilities, vertical internal management, and horizontal external consolidation to boost the effectiveness of the multi-disciplinary partnership and build a more complete and convenient smart IoT network. 
TYDEP Director-General and Director of EcoLogistics Office Li-teh Lu said that even as Taoyuan City focuses on the promotion of urban ecologistics, it is also looking for ways to make logistics “cleaner, smarter, sustainable and human-oriented.” Pei-Chieh Lin (Lecturer, Alliance of Taiwan Logistics), and Boyong Wang (Representative in Asia, Strategic Partnerships of Smart Freight Centre) were invited to share current challenges, opportunities and success stories from the promotion of low-emission and sustainable logistics by EU and Asian cities. The seamless integration with international green logistics and trends in supply chain development aid with the transformation into a more resilient enterprise eco-sphere. Economic development can therefore be environmentally-friendly as well. The creation of a more practical exchange platform for the public and private sectors will enable the collaborative development of a logistics blueprint for global sustainable enterprises around the world that replicates past successes.
Attendees included Chun-ming Chiu (EcoLogistics Office Director and Deputy Secretary-General of Taoyuan City), Prof. Chu-Jung Cheng (ICLEI EcoLogistics and Sustainable Transportation), Li-chun Lin (Industry representative and Chairperson of Bausan Logistics), Ming-Chung Huang (CTW Logistics), Shu-Hsiang Chu (Assistant Manager, Evergreen Logistics), Yen-ling Chang (President, Gaius Automotive, Asami Kobayashi (President, Chiyoda Taiwan), Wei-te Yeh (CEO, PackAge+), and Li-chin Peng (CEO, Toplogis).
