Main Objectives

Smartfusion will develop and demonstrate novel transport innovations that will improve the efficiency, as well as social and environmental sustainability, of urban freight operations and the related urban- interurban shipment processes.

  • The main objectives can be summarised as follows:
  • To enhance the innovation process at urban-interurban interfaces;
  • To demonstrate and evaluate the technical and logistical feasibility of introducing electric vehicles and the second generation of hybrid truck technology into the business environment;
  • To apply these vehicle technologies, in conjunction with information technology, operational, managerial and regulatory innovations, including urban consolidation centres and telematics systems.
  • To determine the critical success factors in stimulating the market uptake of new sustainable vehicle technology and other innovations in the urban logistics environment.
  • To develop a Smart Urban Designer tool that allows other city-regions and company supply chains to analyse the likely success and benefits of applying these innovations in their domain.
