The NOVELOG project is aimed at providing guidance for the sustainable implementation of policies and measures for the urban freight transport systems. This guidance will foster the selection of optimum solutions and facilitate the development of improved governance and business models attuned to a collaborative culture.
To increase understanding of urban freight and service trips, NOVELOG will carry out data collection activities, as well as implement and conduct field-testing of city logistics measures in selected cities. The project will also develop a typology of cities and urban freight system components and establish the implementation channels for introducing sustainable solutions towards CO2-free city logistics.
By assisting cities to incorporate the best-fitting policies into integrated urban planning, the dissemination and exploitation of project outcomes will result in a dynamic take-up process. In turn, this will ensure the continuity of the impacts and contribute to policymaking at a local, regional, national and EU level.
