Smart Network Operator Platform enabling Shared, Integrated and more Sustainable Urban Freight Logistics

Objective

The main objective of SENATOR project is to provide 4 governance schemes for urban planning policies: User demand planning, Transport planning, Freight & Logistics planning and City infrastructure focused, bringing together relevant stakeholders in urban freight logistics within one multi-collaborative framework based on a new urban logistics model to attend the requirements of the 'on demand economy'. As a result, urban governability will be enhanced considering i) citizen empowerment; ii) integration of new sustainable transport modes; iii) efficient logistics through digitalisation and; iv) urban space management. This urban logistics model demands another role under new planning processes. SENATOR proposes a smart network operator, as integrator, based on a multi-level system model, which enables load pooling and offers a better decision-making and real time control process.

SENATOR will deliver an innovative “control tower” approach, allowing dynamic planning and ensuring operative optimisation through a fluent relationship between urban planners, urban freight logistics players and citizen engagement. This will be actuated in a platform which balances demand of freight & delivery services with available vehicle load for on-demand city needs. The main concept behind the project idea is to create a new urban logistic model focused on the four urban layers (end-receiver, transport, logistics and infrastructure). This will provide integrated models for urban planning policies. This urban logistics model creates a new role, the smart network operator that boost collaboration among all freight urban logistic agents. Based on a multi-level system model for urban space management promoting sustainability and shared-connected freight and delivery services in cities, SENATOR will optimise the satisfaction of all stakeholders’ needs through empowering their decision-making capacity & prioritising urban mobility by an integrated approach.
