127 Freight Electric Vehicles to be used within the FREVUE project!

25 March 2013

Demonstrations in Amsterdam, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Milan, Rotterdam, Oslo and Stockholm will evaluate innovative urban freight transport solutions through a genuine public private partnership between municipalities and the logistics industry.

The FREVUE project (Freight Electric Vehicles in Urban Europe) kicked-off its activities with a meeting in London last 21st and 22nd of March. With its 8 demonstrators, FREVUE  will provide evidence for electric vehicles' day-to-day reliability and suitability across a wide range of:

  • Goods deliveries for food, post, waste and other sectors
  • State of the art large electric vehicles-small vans, 3.5t to large 18t freight vehicles
  • Diverse types of logistics organisations, including multi-national logistics companies and small local consolidators
  • Different logistic models e.g. consolidation centres, point to point deliveries, etc.
  • Different charging modes and electricity networks -fast charge, time-shifted, constrained grids, etc.
  • Diverse political and regulatory settings present in Europe

A suite of tools will be developed which are specific to the optimisation of EV use in logistics applications. In addition, a structured evaluation framework will be developed to ensure that data from each of the demonstrators is analysed on a common and pan-European basis.
