POLIS x ALICE
POLIS Network is the leading network of European cities and regions working together to develop innovative technologies and policies for local transport.

The Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration in Europe (ALICE) is the industry lead alliance of the European leading experts and (160+) companies in implementing logistics and supply chain management innovation. ALICE has developed a comprehensive vision aiming at increasing performance and sustainability of freight transport and logistics through the development of the Physical Internet concept to achieve the transition to zero emission logistics in an affordable way.
Since 2019, POLIS and ALICE have established a permanent strategic dialogue, where the vision of this group has been to lead transformation in cities so urban freight and logistics is proactively responding to the pollution, congestion, safety and environmental challenges. Since the dialogue started, productive collaborations have already emerged between companies and cities walking the talk.
