Transport City Logistics Technical workshop "Urban Mobility Package" Brussels, 13 th June 2013 Mark MAJOR DG MOVE Unit C1 : Clean Transport and Sustainable Urban Mobility
Transport Conclusions of review of measures Many examples of measures aimed at mitigating negative effects of urban logistics are available, mainly from previous EU funded projects Several plans have not materialized Objective of measures may differ: ‒ Air quality ‒ Safety ‒ Noise pollution ‒ Efficiency/congestion ‒ Mix of these objectives
Transport Conclusions of review of measures (2) Measures may be grouped as follows: ‒ Land use planning measures ‒ Infrastructure measures ‒ Consolidation (construction materials, general cargo, e- commerce deliveries) ‒ Regulatory measures (LEZ, routing etc) ‒ Speeding up introduction of clean and low noise equipment Each group has it’s specific characteristics with respect to size of investments, lead time, barriers, impacts on various indicators In most cases no systematic evaluation data available
Transport Conclusions Problem analysis and solution differ per city Choice of efficient measures depend on the specific circumstances Knowledge, capabilities, stakeholder process and finance are important elements
Transport Possible policy options EU Various policy options: ‒ Knowledge sharing on urban freight problems and solutions ‒ Capacity development at city level for urban logistics strategies ‒ Technology development for clean and quiet development ‒ Infrastructure development for multimodal movements ‒ Regulatory measures, like pricing, low emission zones
Transport Policy questions: How can the EU support or encourage cities to provide a better policy framework to improve urban logistics? What other actions should the EU undertake to improve urban logistics? Is urban logistics a necessary element to be addressed in the SUMP framework?
