Good Practice Information

The LOGeco project aims to design and validate a new model for urban logistics solutions which entails innovative and sustainable actions. LOGeco involves all the relevant public and private stakeholders operating in the different distribution chains affecting the urban freight sector, and defines sustainable transport solutions for the ‘last mile’ in the city centre, mainly by electric vehicles transporting goods on demand from a local cargo hub to recipient businesses in the city centre. This policy aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions but also improved liveability and attractiveness for tourists and businesses, through reduction of air and noise emissions and increase safety. Designed for long-term economic sustainability, it is not dependent on public funding.

Evidence of success

From 2012, LOGeco is in early adoption. Early results show that LOGeco contributes to reduced fuel consumption. During the test, calculations show 218 kg of CO2 reduction/vehicle. According to monitoring and user reports, the vehicles have been appropriate for the intended activity; A good 20 % margin on battery capacity; 5 times less cost/kilometer as compared to equivalent diesel transports
