Kelly Pitera is an Associate Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). She graduated with a Ph.D in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington. Her research interests include sustainable urban transport and engineering education, and her current work is focused on infrastructure planning and design in urban areas to accommodate diverse users.  She holds a BSCE from Villanova University and a MSCE from the University of Washington. Prior to graduate school, Kelly worked for Berger/ABAM Engineers and was responsible for bridge and roadway design for numerous transportation projects.

Astrid Bjørgen Sund is a research manager at SINTEF, Transportation research. Her interests are into urban freight, city logistics, supply chain and intermodal transport in general. Being the project leader for the on-going Green Urban Freight project in Oslo  has given her great knowledge about the need for cooperation both with public and private stakeholders in developing measures adapted to the local framework. Working as a researcher has given her the opportunity to set operational experience into a larger context of how to provide an efficient and environmentally friendly transport system for industry.

Tomas Levin currently holds a position as senior principal engineer at the ITS section at the Norwegian public roads administration. Tomas has worked  as a transport analyst in Rambøll and as a researcher at SINTEF. His main research interest has been freight transport and ITS and he also holds a phd in freight transport emission calculations.

Dr. Edward McCormack is a Research Assistant Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering and a Principal Research Engineer with the Washington State Transportation Center (TRAC) at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA.  He has over 35 years' experience researching a range of transportation issues.  His projects have included evaluating different methods of obtaining truck trip generation rates, developing freight transportation systems performance measures for public agencies, and exploring the impacts of smart growth policies on goods delivery.  Over the past year, he worked for the Norwegian Public Roads Administration as a Chief Engineer developing data-driven tools to monitor the performance of their transportation system.  Dr. McCormack has also managed a number of studies to test technology to facilitate freight flows along roadways and through border crossings and seaports.  Prior to working at the university, he was a consultant completing transportation impact studies and running transportation models.  He received his master's degree in Civil Engineering and Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Washington.
