Project Description

Consolidation and Coordination in urban areas

For the common European market to function efficiently and effectively, it is vital to have a transportation network that is capable of meeting the demands of the modern world; it must be an integrated, green and efficient system. This will enable two things which are fundamental to Europe: the free movements of goods and people into and within Europe. Not only is this important for economic growth but also for European cohesion and the wellbeing of Europe’s citizens. CONCOORD focuses on urban related freight transportation flows. It engages with key players in the urban transportation field, ranging from leading European universities to world-class European companies. Specifically, CONCOORD investigates three things: an integrated freight simulation environment, a unique measurement framework for the environmental footprint of transport and logistics, and the performance measurements of innovative and new urban transport and logistics concepts. By investigating these areas CONCOORD hopes to reduce urban freight movements and its impact on residents of urban areas and the environment.
