Use of shared transport facilities as urban micro-hubs and open consolidation hubs through real time data collection by logistics service providers.

The City of Copenhagen is one of the selected EU Mission 100 climate-neutral and smart cities by 2030. To reach its climate objectives and deploy zero-emission logistic solutions, Copenhagen is taking an integrated approach through DISCO to ensure that the entire functional urban area benefits from the transition. The City recognises that its policies will affect local stakeholders, and will therefore work closely with industry sectors, citizens, and public authorities to ensure desirable outcomes for all.

The Copenhagen Living Lab consists in the development of a logistics Digital Twin (DT) as a decision support system to evaluate in advance the effects on logistics and goods delivery of several potential policy and infrastructure interventions (e.g., road closures, zero-emission zones, deployment of local or regional hubs, weight limitations, curb side management).

The DT will be fed in an innovative way, through an enhanced local urban freight data collection at the urban and peri-urban level by leveraging on local initiatives that involve relevant stakeholders related to urban logistics.

The DT will also support the development of micro-hubs and open consolidation hubs in the city thanks to the use of shared transport facilities. The data will provide knowledge and support the development of real-time decision-making tools for policy and managing logistics traffic.
