CITY FREIGHT proposes a comparison of innovations in freight transport in Europe. Research field will cover not only new logistic technologies and their internal efficiency but also accompanying measures as: new traffic and parking management methods aiming to dissuade certain categories of goods vehicles to enter the city centre; new urban planning principles aiming to influence positively the freight transport demand patterns. New systems and methods will be incorporated in citywide scenarios before to be evaluated and ranked by using a Multi-dimensional assessment method including: technical feasibility; market efficiency; environmental efficiency. Cities of seven countries will collaborate in building realistic deployment scenarios. Best Practices will then be applied to prepare a city logistic plan for each participating city.
