Stakeholders exchange on vehicle developments for better urban freight delivery
CityMove works at the development of an innovative vehicle for urban freight delivery. It reconsiders logistics operations, the whole vehicle architecture, its propulsion (considering hybrid and full electric options), and various benefits from technology.
Participants to the workshop also discussed developments of the CityLog project which aims to contribute to the improvement of the overall city logistics efficiency through a combination of several measures including Info-telematic support functionalities and new vehicle solutions as well as process improvements related to vehicle-to-vehicle transhipment and innovative and interoperable load units.
