Project Name Smart Network Operator Platform enabling Shared, Integrated and more Sustainable Urban Freight Logistics
Project Detail In order to manage urban planning policies in an optimal way, the EU-funded SENATOR project aims to produce governance schemes on user demand planning, transport planning, freight and logistics planning and city infrastructure. Within this scope, the project will create a multi-collaborative framework that will bring together stakeholders in urban freight logistics. A control tower will help plan the operations and ease the relationships between urban planners and urban freight logistics players. Eventually, the project will create a new urban logistic model focussed on the four urban layers (end-receiver, transport, logistics and infrastructure) and enhance citizen engagement in urban planning policies. The main objective of SENATOR project is to provide 4 governance schemes for urban planning policies: User demand planning, Transport planning, Freight & Logistics planning and City infrastructure focused, bringing together relevant stakeholders in urban freight logistics within one multi-collaborative framework based on a new urban logistics model to attend the requirements of the on demand economy. As a result, urban governability will be enhanced considering i) citizen empowerment; ii) integration of new sustainable transport modes; iii) efficient logistics through digitalisation and; iv) urban space management. This urban logistics model demands another role under new planning processes. SENATOR proposes a smart network operator, as integrator, based on a multi-level system model, which enables load pooling and offers a better decision-making and real time control process. SENATOR will deliver an innovative “control tower” approach, allowing dynamic planning and ensuring operative optimisation through a fluent relationship between urban planners, urban freight logistics players and citizen engagement. This will be actuated in a platform which balances demand of freight & delivery services with available vehicle load for on-demand city needs. The main concept behind the project idea is to create a new urban logistic model focused on the four urban layers (end-receiver, transport, logistics and infrastructure). This will provide integrated models for urban planning policies. This urban logistics model creates a new role, the smart network operator that boost collaboration among all freight urban logistic agents. Based on a multi-level system model for urban space management promoting sustainability and shared-connected freight and delivery services in cities, SENATOR will optimise the satisfaction of all stakeholders’ needs through empowering their decision-making capacity & prioritising urban mobility by an integrated approach.
