Project overview

Greening Regional fReight Transport in fuAs

People like to shop online but this comes hand-in-hand with more freight transport. Cities are most affected by higher emissions, noise and the congestion of public spaces linked to deliveries. The GRETA project offers solutions on how to decarbonise the so-called last mile of freight transport. In their joint efforts, the partners pilot the use of zero-emission-vehicles like cargo bikes. They also re-organise urban spaces to improve their transit resilience through curb management strategies.

About the project

E-commerce is booming, and with it comes an increase in freight transport. This is putting a strain on our cities, with higher emissions, noise, and congestion. The GRETA project is working to decarbonize the last mile of freight transport by piloting the use of zero-emission vehicles like cargo bikes. The project partners are reorganizing urban spaces to make them more efficient for freight deliveries. They are also working to develop new curb management strategies that will reduce the number of delivery vehicles on the road. GRETA is a solution for a more sustainable future. By reducing emissions and congestion, we can make our cities cleaner, quieter, and more livable.
