Pisa, Italy

The city of Pisa is an historic Italian town with about 200,000 inhabitants. The city lacks data on UFT phenomena and also faces congestion problems – partly because of the average load factor of freight vehicles, which is about 35%.

The objective of the case study is the diffusion of use of electric vehicles for urban distribution, to alleviate the environmental impacts. This will be achieved by integrating the existing electric mobility policy with freight consolidation practices, by evaluating how reverse logistics can be integrated into the Urban Distribution Centre platform, and by developing an ITS system integrating freight management and enforcement.
