An European innovative logistic platform for last mile delivery of goods in urban environment

Solution Title (in English)


Freight transport, Green transport, Green procurement


Logistics industry


The LIFE GYR project aims to promote energy-efficient urban freight transport through the introduction of green routing. It will demonstrate and deliver an innovative, smart and integrated vehicle-routing platform to five SMEs in three EU Member States (Czech Republic, Greece and Italy). The platform will include tools and services for making environmentally-friendly routing decisions that take into account eco-driving requirements and cost-efficiency. A key principle is that lower GHG emissions can be achieved by improving the logistics operations of freight-focused SMEs without a huge investment of money and time. The project also aims to introduce an innovative policy in the pan-European transport system based on cost-saving green routing; prepare for the replicability and transferability of GYR services to other sectors, regions and entities; and to establish a GYR company to provide a verified green routing service to transport operators. In addition, it will raise awareness and mobilise actors to adopt green procurement rules towards sustainable urban mobility.
