The objective of this WP was to facilitate the introduction of cleaner vehicles for last mile distribution and the use of intermodal transports. By distributing with e.g. small electric vehicles, the local environment is drastically improved, in terms of greenhouse gas and particle emissions, road safety and congestion. We are interested in any cleaner alternative to diesel and petrol powered vehicles – apart from electric vehicles, this includes hybrids, cargo bikes and other forms of modal shift.
Investment in the vehicles was NOT included in this project.
The report gathers key findings and results from the cleaner vehicle tests which took place in different conditions across a number of SMARTSET locations in Europe, and from other related work that took place within the work package dedicated to cleaner vehicle solutions in freight transport and logistics. The material gathered in this document has mostly been presented in previous deliverables D4.1 to D4.4, but these are updated here, to reflect the status at the end of the project.
