Deutschland-Nederland Citylogistic 2.0

Citylogistic 2.0

The demands on city centres are becoming ever greater against the backdrop of climate protection. Logistics in cities has a major influence on the reduction of emissions. Courier, express and parcel shipments already account for a large and increasing share of goods deliveries in cities. Customer demands for climate-neutral parcel services are also increasing. In order to counteract the resulting rising costs, increased traffic volume and the burdens in terms of land use, air and noise emissions, new logistics concepts are required, especially in the context of the so-called last mile. Decentralisation, energy self-sufficiency and temporal flexibility are decisive keys to cost and energy optimisation.

The aim of the project is therefore the development of an
innovative, intelligent and sustainable distribution system, consisting of an
energetically self-sufficient, mobile mini-hub and a new developed electric vehicle for this
purpose – LEFV (Light Electric Freight Vehicle), which is operated on the basis
of the renewable energies spread by the mini-hub. The Mini-Hub is modular and
made of sustainable building materials and is also suitable for temporary use.

Two 9 – 12-month operating and test phases in the partner
cities of Groningen and Oldenburg are envisaged. Both cities are well
comparable with each other and have high ambitions for greenhouse gas

The cross-border cooperation is between companies, clusters
and research institutions. The involvement of other stakeholders – especially
from the logistics sector, but also with a view to local government – ensures
that the concept can also be transferred to other cities and municipalities.
Initial expressions of interest have already been received.
