Summary

SUCCESS has chosen to target the construction industry as a major impacting sector on city logistics which has un-exploited potentials of improvement of the efficiency of goods, waste and service trips in EU cities, by answering the challenges pinpointed by the European Commission and in particular by improving urban freight understanding and introduce more resource-efficient, more environmental-friendly, safer and seamless supply chain innovations.

The deliverable D6.1 is part of the “Replicability and Take up” activities which aim at demonstrating the potential of the solutions developed by SUCCESS to be replicated and transferred afterwards. It consolidates 22 good practices observed mainly in European countries and USA to improve knowledge and understanding of the construction supply chain and logistics.

It targets construction companies, local authorities and academics with the intent of promoting practices that can improve the supply chain management and logistics in the construction sector.
