ENergy efficiency in City LOgistics Services for small and mid-sized European Historic Towns


European small/mid-size historic towns (EU SMHTs) are a major component of EU urbanised structure, with over 1000 centres located in all EU27 countries. While city logistics innovation efforts have been undertaken in most European major centres, ENCLOSE proposes to focus attention on SMHTs and to enhance the diffusion of energy efficiency and sustainable urban logistics planning solutions in EU towns. ENCLOSE addresses the STEER urban energy-efficient transport theme by: 1. qualifying the demand of Local Authorities of EU SMHTs for sustainable, energy-efficient urban logistics and freight distribution solutions, 2. spreading good practices and suitable strategies for affective integration in the overall urban mobility and town governance policies, 3. supporting the development of urban logistics and freight distribution plans, 4. contributing to the definition of frame of recommendations to relevant institutional bodies, decision and policy makers.
