"The C-LIEGE toolkit offers significant trailblazing measures some of which are very immediate in their impact. Others bring different ways of behaviour into people's minds, and will have a longer-term impact in terms of what we plan and what we think is important in terms of planning.One little line in the C-LIEGE toolkit (ecodriving) has a tremendous ripple effect in terms of political understanding of the topic (sustainable urban logistics) but then it also ripples out across citizens."
Nigel Todd, Councillor and Deputy Cabinet Member, Newcastle City Council
"The experience that Montana Municipality gains in the project gives us the opportunity to get acquainted with the best practices in the field of the urban freight transport and to apply in practice already successfully implemented measures. I realised that the problems the other pilot cities have, the approach to solve them and the goals they have set are similar to ours, which shows that we have chosen the right way to solve the problems at local level and gives me the courage and confidence that through the implementation of the C-LIEGE project and with common efforts we can improve the urban freight transport and provide more clean environment for the citizens."
Zlatko Zhivkov, Mayor of Municipality Montana
"Thanks to C-LIEGE, we will embark on efforts to develop both a societal and a regulatory framework for sustainable urban logistics. We need to change mentality. The C-LIEGE project is a boost for my local Council to start educating our citizens in the values of sustainable mobility."
Paul Farrugia, Mayor of Tarxien, Malta
"C-LIEGE makes it easier for us to work on sustainable urban logistics. Urban freight transport will change in future, and this is not only a matter of technology. Soft measure success stories from other cities are convincing and help us to cope with old-fashioned attitudes and conventional mobility patterns."
Olaf Dienelt, Administration of Ludwigsburg (Stuttgart Region), department Europe & Energy
"I expect that the defined policies within C-LIEGE could evolve from a pilot to a long-term model and public-private-partnerships in the whole Szczecin Metropolitan Region and the Baltic Sea communities of West Pomerania. I am grateful that Szczecin has been given the chance to implement newest trends. This is why I welcome very much this project."
Olgierd Geblewicz, Marshal of West Pomerania
