CRP Funding Success for Freight

24th September 2015 / Posted by CRP Team

CRP has been awarded over €90,000 to develop innovative approaches to improvements in city logistics across a number of European cities over the next 6 months, under our new project “Freight TAILS”. This funding will support the development of a larger bid (up to €750,000) for the project to be implemented 2016 – 2018.

This funding is awarded under the URBACT III programme.

CRP’s Freight TAILS was one of only 21 applications to be successful at Phase 1 from a total of 99 submissions. We received the following excellent feedback from the funders:

“The URBACT Freight TAILS project addresses the challenges posed by rapidly increasing freight movements, within the context of all urban logistics. It aims at the development of tailored freight management policies using the URBACT Integrated Action Planning methodology. The External Assessment Panel considers this is an excellent proposal, presenting very high quality content on all dimensions to be assessed and very high potential for successful implementation.” URBACT Secretariat

“Freight TAILS” Phase 1 is led by CRP in partnership with Maastricht (The Netherlands), Parma (Italy), Plascencia (Spain), and Suceava (Romania). Over the course of the next 6 months we will expand the partnership to total up to 12 European cities for the full Phase 2 application.
