Researchers Anna Dreischerf and Paul Buijs have won the Transport Logistics Best Paper Award 2021/2022. Their paper (in Dutch) on public procurement for more sustainable urban logistics and the role of municipalities herein was found to be the best by the jury at the Transport Logistics Working Days.

All papers were assessed against three criteria: academic quality, practical applicability and readability. Dreischerf and Buijs’ paper excelled on all fronts. The jury praised PhD student Dreischerf and Buijs, an assistant professor in Sustainable Logistics, for their clear analysis of how Dutch municipalities momentarily operate when it comes to procurement and to what degree this contributes to making urban logistics more sustainable. According to the jury, the FEB-researchers offer clear, well-founded and practical suggestions that are highly applicable.

The paper includes an analysis of the requirements and award criteria in the procurement documents of large, mid-size and small municipalities. Based on this analysis and interviews with policy officers and procurement officers, the researchers conclude that municipalities, especially the larger municipalities, use public procurement increasingly often in order to stimulate sustainable urban logistics.
