Purpose and goal
The purpose of ELLOG has been to accelerate the transition towards a fossil-free transport sector based on renewable electricity. The project has reached its aim to investigate the preconditions and describe efficient logistic set ups based on electric trucks and suitable charging infrastructure.
Expected results and effects
Two main applications, waste handling and goods distribution, have been analyzed, with the aim to create descriptions of demonstrations of logistic set ups with fleets of electric vehicles. An overall conclusion from the project is that the electrification of urban logistics with medium sized heavy trucks is technically feasible and economically reasonable within short. ELLOG has contributed to a better understanding of the ongoing electrification. It is expected that the increased knowledge contributes to speeding up the transition towards a fossil-free transport sector.
Planned approach and implementation
A number of partners from the industry, society and the academia have worked in close cooperation. A description of the present set up in the different applications of urban logistics have been made. Routes, time tables, loads, vehicle types and staffing and the kind of terminal or depot infrastructure as well as system planning have been described. A tool for system analysis used and developed in a previous project (EAEB) has been developed further and used to study and visualize the technical performance of the present set ups, when electrified.
