Urban logistics and plaNning: AntiCipating urban freigHt generAtion and demand including dIgitalisation of urbaN freight (UNCHAIN) 

The project aims to facilitate public and private sector cooperation and data exchange and interoperability to improve logistics planning, promote and move towards the creation of European space for mobility data. The project’s activities include analyzing the existing transport data flow, preparing guidelines for the creation of city logistics platforms, as well as identifying the good practices of partner cities in data collection. Project will create a set of services for optimal and flexible urban logistics operation, management, planning and policymaking, unleashing the potential that technology and digitalisation can bring to the sustainable urban logistics and moving towards climate-neutral and smart cities. 

In the UNCHAIN project, Rīga takes part as a follower city, alongside the primary demonstration sites of Madrid, Berlin, and Florence, implementing the solutions developed in the project. Rīga will support the demonstration of on-street loading zones planning tool as well as active UVARs and City Regulations tool.
