is an essential service for the society. Products must be shipped from
factories to markets. With increasing traffic volumes in urban areas and consequent
traffic congestion, it is becoming difficult for freight transport to get into
urban center areas. Freight transport in cities represents from 10 to 18% of
the road traffic causing 40% of air pollution and noise emissions (COST 321).
MOSCA aims at
highly reducing several problems affecting freight distribution in European
metropolitan areas, such as booking and reservation procedures, vehicle
routing, loading/unloading areas reservations, emergency management support,
effective and efficient multimodal inter-connection.
