Taoyuan aspiring to become smart city for logistics

To demonstrate its smart city solutions to other cities worldwide, the local government of Taoyuan, Taiwan signed contracts with Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), a network of more than 1,750 local and regional governments committed to sustainable urban development, to become the chair for ICLEI's first international EcoLogistics community in 2019. Taoyuan also established the EcoLogistics Community Chair Office in March 2020.

The deputy secretary-general of the Taoyuan municipal government and CEO of the office, Jiunn-Ming Chiou, pointed out that the city has a comprehensive logistics industry surrounding the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, the largest international airport in Taiwan.

There are around 2,000 logistics processing sites and enterprises with mixed levels of digital transformation all around Taoyuan and the city government believes these companies' development will play a key part in Taoyuan's transformation into a smart city, Chiou said.
