Urban freight distribution: SMILE information guide gathers energy-efficient best practices

Urban freight transport plays a key role towards the economic vitality of the cities. Goods transport and delivery are fundamental elements of economic activity that is increasingly dependent on the regional business network producing increased pollutant emissions and greenhouse gas effects.

The high frequency and delivery time requirements, the weight of freights and the large number of shipments characterizing these deliveries indicate a significant potential for increased energy consumption and CO2 emissions in urban freight transport.

The SMILE project, aiming at testing and sharing solutions for green and smart urban logistics, has collected a wide range of energy-efficient measures regarding urban freight distribution. The publication provides a variety of good practices to inspire energy efficient interventions in 4 categories: technologies, information tools, operative tools and marketing tools.

The SMILE project has just come to an end. Funded under the MED Programme of the European Union, it was led by 6 Mediterranean cities amonst which 3 are Covenant signatories (Barcelona, Rijeka and Montpellier). Find all the projects’ results and publications at smile-urbanlogistics.eu.
