VIU_TeDIS is one of the partners of the NOVELOG project: New cooperative business models and guidance for sustainable city logistics cofinanced by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Program for Research and Innovation.

The scope of the project is to enable the knowledge and understanding of freight distribution and service trips by providing guidance for implementing effective and sustainable policies and measures. 

This guidance will support the choice of applicable solutions for urban freight and transport services and will facilitate stakeholders collaboration and the development, field testing and transfer of the best governance and business models.
NOVELOG will innovate by progressing beyond the state-of-art in urban freight and city logistics within a triple helix of (1) evaluation framework development, data collection, and empirical analyses; (2) specific demonstrators and case studies and (3) guidelines for Europe-wide take-up of the best policies and solutions.
