Cooperation and standards will simplify changes in the construction industry
24 February 2021
"We urgently need to get better at monitoring what we do and we have to work together." This is how Sven Hunhammer, director for the environment and health and safety at the Swedish Traffic Administration, introduced the first in a new series of webinars on the subject of construction logistics.
Developing construction logistic solution for urban environments
10 December 2020
When the current urbanization trend puts pressure on city development, there is a need to manage transport to and from a construction site as well as materials handling on-site. One way of doing this is by employing construction logistics setup i.e. consolidation terminal, checkpoints or a combination of both. However, how to develop a logistic setup is somewhat unclear.
A method that can change the future of construction logistics
16 November 2020
The logistics around a construction site makes up the largest part of the transport work of goods on the Swedish road network today. But this can be changed if contractors can optimise the logistic chain early or even before the construction work has started.
Improved impact assessments towards emission-free construction logistics
2 November 2020
In order to overcome barriers and set ambitious environmental requirements, which will enable to implement emission free construction logistics solutions, off-site and on-site construction logistics activities have to become smarter, more efficient and sustainable. In the MIMIC project a report has been conducted aiming to develop the impact assessment framework for construction logistics,
Water and railways enable efficient and climate-smart construction logistics
8 June 2020
Cities are becoming increasingly dense and in order to build them, many different modes of transport are needed so that it can take place with minor impact on the environment in the city. "If the construction site is located at or close to a railway station or port, these forms of transport should be used, since it contributes to less congestion both at the construction site and in the cities and on our roads," says Anna Fredriksson, Linköping University.
Continue to collaborate for future opportunities

Never has collaboration been as important as it is now. Various measures are currently being taken to support the Swedish economy and mitigate the consequences of the coronavirus outbreak. Within the innovation system, we can contribute by continuing to look ahead. "We need to find and establish new ways and forms to quickly get the pace up once the situation has stabilized," says Tord Hermansson, CEO of Lindholmen Science Park.
Important finding relevant data and the willingness to share it!
17 December 2019
The third MIMIC consortium meeting was held 3-4th of December at Omsorgsbygg headquarter in Oslo. Participants from all four countries were present and discussed the status and next steps forward for each work package and pilot project. The meeting also included workshops, presentations and a visit to Olav Vs gate/Klingenberggata, a zero-emissions development site in the city center of Oslo.
We need to consider multiple construction sites at once
29 March 2019
Pamela Nolz was interviewed about what has been accomplished in the CIVIC-project and what will be the main focus of MiMIC.
Increase stakeholder involvement in construction logistics
30 January 2019
The Mimic consortium met for the first-time mid-January and this time it was in Vienna. The participants discussed the way moving forward both in each individual work package but also together, in-between the work pages.
Aiming for sustainable construction logistics
28 November 2018
The aim of the MIMIC project is to demonstrate how SMART Governance concepts can be used as an aid in the construction and city planning processes. They can facilitate and support logistics to, from and on urban construction sites to improve mobility and reduce congestion. This is done within cities and will thereby reduce the negative impact of construction sites on the surrounding community.
