Context and policy framework
Unregulated loading and unloading activities and illegal parking are a growing problem in the City of Lisbon, the 9th most populated urban area in the European Union. These cause road congestion in the historical protected urban centre and temporary blockage of roads, adding to the difficulty of delivering in this area with narrow streets, small and irregular routes and complicated parking slots. These difficulties result in an inefficient logistics sector for both mail deliveries and services.
Lisbon is committed to the uptake of clean and electric mobility as attested by the leading role of the Portuguese Capital in the ambitious past National Program for Electric Mobility (MOBI.E) which included the implementation of more than 600 charging points in the city by the year 2012.
Lisbon has also developed a strategic plan for electric vehicles, defined models for Public Private Partnerships with car sharing companies, energy suppliers, parking companies and vehicle manufacturers.
Solutions implemented in FREVUE
CTT Correios, the national post company and EMEL, the municipal agency for mobility and parking, introduced electric vehicles in their fleets for post-delivery services and municipal services respectively. Both activities take place within the urban historical neighbourhoods of Lisbon.
ICT solutions to centralise the management of loading and unloading activities and route planning optimisation are also being tested.
