6Aika: New Solutions in Citylogistics

 

The New Solutions in City Logistics project develops new kinds of solutions and service entities in the “last mile” execution, together with operators in the field of logistics.

The project provides opportunities to develop new types of low-carbon operational models, which makes it possible to further optimize transportation needs while increasing the ecological sustainability of logistics. The new kinds of service entities optimize the execution of distribution, create prerequisites for joint pilots of various operators and quick trials, as well as help companies use open interfaces and create new service entities.

Pilots conducted in the project will utilize new technology and the transparency of information will create prerequisites for increased equality in the logistics sector. The logistics solutions being piloted include light logistics, autonomous delivery transport and short-range deliveries. In the project TUAS is responsible about the piloting and testing of last mile cargo delivery vehicles. The other project partners include City of Turku, Forum Virium Helsinki, Valonia and Tampere University of Applied Sciences.
