Urban logistics and planning: anticipating urban freight generation and demand including digitalisation of urban freight

< Back

Open Call Reference: HORIZON-CL5-2022-D6-02-02

How urban space is being used and allocated can influence congestion, noise, road
risk, air quality, GHG emissions as well as liveability. At the same time there is a gap for
purpose-oriented freight data collection in cities to support their decision making towards
sustainability targets such as climate neutrality, air quality, road safety reducing congestion
and better use of public space

– Consider dynamic space re-allocation for the integration of urban freight at local level and the impacts of how urban space is being used as well as the optimal mix of space distribution and of land uses
– Analyse the potential of strategically positioned urban (or peri-urban) spaces to develop and implement a pilot demonstration, (but without interfering with parks, trees or other recreational green areas).
– Consider involving real estate companies, logistics service providers, together with cities, to develop sustainable business models for open and clean hubs/consolidation spaces in cities

– Take up and upscaling of innovative, best practice and replicable data driven logistics
solutions and planning in the living labs
– Improved local authority capacity
– Valorisation of data and information
– Improved space management
– Sustainable solutions and technologies
