Planning for Sustainable Urban Logistics in Europe – a Review. NORSULP Deliverable 1.1

Bærekraftige bylogistikkplaner i Europa - En litteraturstudie. NORSULP Leveranse 1.1

This study aim to identify current European Sustainable Urban Logistics Plans (SULP) and freight related Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) with the purpose of reviewing and extracting lessons for future freight planning practices in Europe. The results suggest that the use of urban freight plans, in Europe is limited but increasing. SULP’s are freight strategies, action plans or part of a mobility plan, which provide a long-term vision for local urban freight activities. The plans follow a structure of identifying the current situation and defining the strategic context, vision, targets and objectives using selected policy measures depending on the geographical scope. The methodological structure of the Sustainable Urban Transport Plans (SUTP), SUMP and SULP are used in existing European urban freight plans and a further standardisation could provide a conceptually common understanding. Combining urban freight and existing sustainable development strategies and legally binding local, regional and national guidelines are important for further increased attention on urban freight.
