SENATOR aims to produce governance schemes on user demand, transport, and logistics planning in order to create a framework that will bring together stakeholders in urban freight logistics.


About the project

The main objective of the SENATOR (Smart Network Operator Platform enabling Shared, Integrated and more Sustainable Urban Freight Logistics) project is to provide governance schemes for four urban planning policies: User demand planning, Transport planning, Freight and Logistics planning and City infrastructure.

SENATOR proposes a solution that integrates these four layers into one platform, which resembles a “control tower”, also known as the smart network operator. It aims to aggregate existing demand regarding urban last-mile logistic services and matching it with available resources (e.g. vehicles) and infrastructure (e.g. parking places) in order to satisfy all existing needs in a sustainable way. 

This multi-level urban space management model will promote sustainability, shared-connected freight and delivery services in cities, and optimise the satisfaction of all stakeholders’ needs by empowering their decision-making capacity and prioritising urban mobility via an integrated approach. It will also ensure an optimisation of operations through a fluent relationship between urban planners, urban freight logistics players and citizens.
