Off-Peak transport - a good environmental choice

HITS has focused on transport in cities. A focus area has been Off-peak transport. Electrification of the vehicles enables night deliveries as the noise levels go down. The carriers increase their delivery precision when they deliver the goods off peak, which is an important customer value, but if the customer does not want the goods at these times? what will be left of the customer value then? Can this be solved in a way so that both the customer and the carrier benefit from the goods arriving during the night?

Cross-border knowledge-sharing to reduce CO2 emissions

High-Capacity Transport (HCT) refers to transporting things longer and/or heavier than current regulations allow. Increased use of HCT vehicles would increase energy efficiency and thereby reduce CO2 emissions. An important part of the development of HCT-vehicles is the exchange of ideas and knowledge, which the Nordic network did at last week's conference.

Smart zones for a more sustainable and safe city

— To create a city on pedestrians' terms, right technology and good cooperation are needed, says Felicia Hökars, project manager, Smart Urban Traffic Zones. The result from the Smart urban traffic zones project shows that it is technically possible to create smart zones in cities to control transport with everything from food to concrete, for a safer and more sustainable city.
