The geographic area of the pilot is the Freight Limited Traffic Zone (LTZ) which covers about 6km2. This area is of high commercial and business relevance to the city, with average daily commercial traffic of around 27000 freight vehicles. This increased traffic creates problems for freight distribution.
The pilot aims to design and develop a freight Decision Support System (DSS) which will provide recommendations for the reorganisation of the freight delivery system, for the location of facilities, for use of innovative vehicles and for the definition of the tender process for the implementation of any Urban Consolidation Centres required.
In order to develop this DSS, the City will monitor the performance of low emission vehicles, Urban Consolidation Centres and electric van-sharing schemes, matching it against restrictions and regulations. The partners involved in the pilot are the University of Rome and the Mobility Agency of Rome.
