POSTLowCIT: Low-noise and low-carbon freight delivery for Postal Operators to ensure last mile connections through optimized urban and long distance transport


The Action's overall objective is the development of an efficient urban freight delivery service for Correos – the Spanish universal postal operator– by using alternative energy vehicles, with the aim to contribute to the reduction of pollutant emissions, mainly CO2 and NOx, and the noise associated to urban and long-distance traffic.
The Action consists of a feasibility study to draw an Action Plan towards 2030 which includes the development of a distribution control system to ensure smooth last mile connections together with the deployment of electric vehicles and softer modes in urban areas and vehicles powered by autogas for long distance transport between urban nodes.
The Action will be implemented in four main urban nodes within the Mediterranean corridor in Spain, namely, Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla and Valencia.

The PostLowCit project has received funding from the European Union's Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Transport funding programme under Action No. 2015-ES-TM-0239-S
