City multi-Role Optimized Vehicle

Objective

The delivery of freight in urban areas is based on general purpose commercial vehicles, not dedicated to a mission in a very specific scenario like urban areas. This is particularly true for medium vehicles (7,5-12 tons) that are however widely used in towns. CITY MOVE aims to develop a new concept for urban delivery vehicles, a real breakthrough from the actual vehicle platforms, using the latest state-of-the-art technologies to guarantee the market introduction in short term (leaving from 2013 i.e. two years after the end of the project). It is a co-operative venture between the leading freight vehicle companies in Europe and other key stakeholders. The aim is to develop an innovative freight vehicle solution that is adaptable to the diverse needs of European cities. The solution will provide freight transport vehicles that are secure, flexible, reliable, clean, CO2 energy efficient and safe. Developing this common industrial platform for future freight transport systems in Europe requires a greater emphasis on economic efficiency, but combined with a necessary emphasis on social, energy and environmental considerations. These are paramount concerns for European city policy makers when matching the objectives of local economic growth with a sustainable environment. Developing such a range of freight vehicles requires a co-ordinated effort by all stakeholders, so that future freight vehicles have the flexibility to adapt to changes in the city commercial environment over the short, medium and long terms. In developing these new freight vehicle options, CITY MOVE will involve all Stakeholders from the outset of the project: acting as a bridge between the freight vehicle industry, the transport research community, city planning authorities and local business communities.
