URBANE aspires to tackle the negative trends associated with last-mile deliveries by identifying and scaling-up novel and sustainable last-mile transportation solutions.
About the project
URBANE (Upscaling Innovative Green Urban Logistics Solutions Through Multi-Actor Collaboration and Physical Internet (PI) - Inspired Last Mile Deliveries) tackles the negative trends associated with last-mile deliveries by supporting the transition towards effective, resilient, safe, and sustainable transport. URBANE’s goals are part of the wider European Commission’s goals for zero-emission last-mile deliveries, as components of the European Green Digital Coalition and the European Climate Pact.
URBANE has four Lighthouse Living Labs (LLs) to demonstrate efficient, replicable, and socially acceptable innovative last-mile delivery solutions (Helsinki, Thessaloniki, Bologna, Valladolid). Lessons learned are facilitated by an Innovation Transferability Platform comprising Digital Twinning Tools, open models, smart contracts governed by blockchain technology, and a data-driven Impact Assessment Radar in two Twinning LLs (Barcelona, Karlsruhe), demonstrating their own solutions within the project. URBANE’s commitment to upscaling is further strengthened by the engagement of six early adopters in the feasibility studies of the adoption of innovations (Aarhus, Antwerp, La Rochelle, Prague, Mechelen, Ravenna).
