Turin is the leading city in Italy for urban logistics, having developed a set of ‘push and pull’ measures dealing with restrictions and incentives for logistics operators delivering their operations in accordance with the Freight Quality Partnership (FQP) Agreement. Despite this, increasing commercial traffic continues to affect traffic flow and burden the environment.
The objective of the pilot of Turin is to improve the average speed of traffic flows and reduce emissions, while proving that innovative concepts and business models in urban logistics can help to build more efficient, effective and sustainable urban transport and logistics networks.
To achieve its goals the Turin pilot will implement two services: multi-user lanes and the management of loading/unloading bays. Multi-user lanes aims at managing access to reserved bus lanes, while the loading/unloading bays management aims at the efficient monitoring of these areas. The pilot partners are the Municipality of Turin and D’Appolonia.
