State of the art logistics solutions and ICT targeted specifically at EVs to avoid some of the practical issues associated with the vehicles: Range and load limitations and long charging times,

Mechanisms to improve the business model for the operators, such as positive discrimination towards EFVs through local policy, novel approaches to procurement by logistics customers and improvements in leasing models to mitigate capital cost issues.
FREVUE will also encourage the exploitation of these results through a widespread dissemination campaign aimed at professionals in the sector. To complement this, FREVUE created a network of “Phase 2” cities to directly share the lessons learned from the demonstrators and expand successful concepts.
In this way, FREVUE takes an important step towards achieving CO2 free city logistics in major urban centres by 2030 and improving air quality in European cities.
