About Michael Browne

I have been a full-time professor at the University of Gothenburg since 2015 having been part of the Visiting Professor Program for the previous three years. My main research focus is on urban goods transport and I provide academic leadership for the Urban Freight Platform a joint University of Gothenburg and Chalmers initiative supported by the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF). I am committed to engaging practitioners and policy-makers with the research community to focus on all aspects of logistics that impact on future patterns of urban goods transport and logistics. I also work on broader research topics research concerned with many issues in sustainable logistics including: e-commerce and home delivery, energy use in the supply chain and the interaction of policy and business decisions. the importance of working with stakeholders in in the cities. Prior to moving to Gothenburg in 2015 I worked for over 20 years at the University of Westminster in London and I continue to chair the Central London Freight Quality Partnership bringing together London boroughs, Transport for London and a range of businesses and their representative associations. I teach on courses in logistics and sustainability and also retail logistics.
