Freight TAILS Final Report:

Edited on

17 April 2018

On the eve of our Final Event, Split, Croatia; the Freight TAILS network is pleased to publish our Final Report: 'Managing urban freight more effectively: A guide to getting started and planning actions.'

The Freight TAILS final report is an online document targeted at city authorities and other freight stakeholders who are interested in developing a set of actions that reduce the negative impacts of urban freight transport.

The report answers the central question ‘How can I make freight transport more effective in my city’, based on the experiences of the 10 cities
involved in the Freight TAILS project, who asked themselves the exact same question in 2015.

The first section outlines ‘Getting Started’ tasks. The second section outlines ‘Taking Action’ tasks. Each task is introduced, experiences from
different Freight TAILS cities reported, and top tips shared. Freight TAILS added value links are made throughout the report to the key Freight
TAILS outputs: case studies highlighting specific experiences from the Freight TAILS cities, thematic reports on urban freight transport and
six key themes and the Freight TAILS partners’ action plans.

Finally, a set of recommended freight actions are provided for cities to implement in order to achieve more effective urban freight transport.
