As economic growth is often linked with a surge in traffic, Iasi wants to coordinate freight transport to reduce the environmental impact and avoid an unnecessary load on the city centre. This will be done through developing a freight quality partnership (FQP). This partnership will work to make goods distribution more efficient in the city. This plan will be the beginning of real positive changes in goods distribution. By evaluating the emission standards of city distribution vehicles, drivers’ attitudes and behaviour and weight/volume capacity ratio of packing vehicles, the measure aims to reduce traffic congestion, air pollution and improve the effectiveness of goods distribution. As part of this measure Iasi will form a Freight Quality Partnership with key stakeholders while developing a strategic Goods Distribution Plan. The measure covers:
- Creating a study to design a Strategic Goods Distribution Plan;
- Implementing the Strategic Goods Distribution Plan.
