The cargo2go.at - Innovative approach for a two stage carrier independet supply in urban areas (cargo2go.at)
Funded by
Austrian Research Promotion Agency, Sensengasse 1, 1090 Wien, Austria
Abstract
The cargo2go.at project is intended to develop an innovative freight transport concept for urban areas. It is based on a variable hub and spoke approach which uses existing infrastructure as temporary
consolidation points and thus, preventing additional surface sealing or expansion. By combining conventional and zero-emission means of transport, the potential of alternative supply concepts (e.g.
cycle freight, e-mobility, etc.) will be evaluated, considering various business, goods, and transport specific needs. The potential of innovative and emission-reducing concepts will be evaluated
numerically by the development of generic methods, taking into account essential aspects (emissions, cost, surface sealing, etc.).
