Overview

Background & Policy context

An efficient transportation system is vital for economic growth, European cohesion and the wellbeing of the citizens. CONCOORD focuses on urban related freight transportation flows that are currently fragmented.

 

Objectives

The study investigated an integrated urban freight simulation environment, a unique measurement framework for the environmental footprint of transport and logistics and the performance measurement of new innovative urban transport and logistics concepts.

CONCOORD dealt with the different and important considerations of new transportation solutions, new mechanisms for execution and control of city logistics, and research on the urban distribution of goods reducing urban freight movements and its impact on residents and the environment.

Results

The CONCOORD project has led to a number of results. Important new models for the coordination and consolidation have been researched and presented in various papers and publications. Secondly, business models have been clearly described and discussed with all relevant stakeholders. Finally, the CONCOORD City Logistics game has been setup and is available (https://citylogisticsgame.com). This city logistics game was designed to demonstrate these difficulties. It is meant as a tool to come to an understanding of the objectives and behaviour of the different stakeholders in city logistics. It is also designed to experience the importance of communication between the stakeholders, to experience decision trade-offs in transport operations and to learn how to interfere when things go wrong.
