Freight delivery rationalisation in cities

Objective

The economic shift towards service activity in urban areas will change the nature of transport in these areas more and more to delivery traffic rather than transit traffic. The increase of e-commerce and other expected changes in shopping behaviour are likely to accelerate this change of freight transport to more frequent deliveries, smaller parcels, more stops so a heavier influence on urban circulation. This calls for a highly efficient and widely supported policy to avoid an increase of mobility problems. Local decision makers and the automotive industry decided to join forces and build a joint vision between them and all other stakeholders. Based on this vision, they then will identify the R&D needs on organisational, technical, political, logistical and industrial level.
