Feasibility study of the electrification of the urban goods distribution transport system, part 2
Syfte och mål
Based on the results from the project ´Feasibility study of the electrification of the urban goods distribution transport system´ (Vinnova reg. no. 2011-01803) , this project aimed to investigate how urban goods distribution fleets can be electrified and how new logistics solutions and incentives can influence the transition in a positive way.
Resultat och förväntade effekter
The project has contributed to an increased understanding of the possibilities and hurdles of an introduction of electrified or zero-emission vehicles for goods distribution in urban environments. This contribution is a step forward to be able to tackle environmental and climate challenges in the future. The project results give valuable information in finding possible solutions to be able to decrease the negative environmental impact caused by the transport industry. The results are considered to be interesting for all stakeholders in the transport industry.
Upplägg och genomförande
During the project, interviews and meetings were held with project partners, colleagues within each partner organisation, and with other stakeholders involved in the urban freight area. Visits to the transport companies of TGM in Gothenburg and Deret in Paris, including terminal visits and observations in trucks during transport assignments, were also performed. Data collection from BD Schenker´s distribution routes in Gothenburg, from Deret´s distribution in Paris, as well as from a number of related European projects, was done. The information were then analysed and reported.
