30.03.2015 -> Freight Electric Vehicles in Urban Europe

FREVUE (Freight Electric Vehicles in Urban Europe) project wish demonstrate to industry, consumers and policy makers, how electric freight vehicles can provide a solution to many of these problems. 127 electric freight vehicles were exposed to the day to day rigors of the urban logistics environment and prove that the current generation of large electric vans and trucks can offer a viable alternative to diesel vehicles; particularly when combined with state of the art urban logistics applications, innovative logistics management software, and well-designed local policy. Co-funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the demonstration projects were implemented in Amsterdam, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Milan, Oslo, Rotterdam and Stockholm.

The demonstration projects have been designed to ensure the range of conditions that are common across Europe are covered, including:

- goods deliveries (including food, waste, pharmaceuticals, packages and construction goods)
- novel logistics systems and associated ICT (with a focus on consolidation centres which minimize trips in urban centres)
- vehicle types (from small car-derived vans to large 18 tonne goods vehicles)
- climates (from Northern to Southern Europe)
- diverse political and regulatory settings that exist within Europe

At the conclusion of the project, the final objective is to encourage the exploitation of the results through a targeted dissemination campaign aimed at decision makers across the logistics industry and associated policy makers and regulators.
