TACTIC, the last mile logistic solution, takes flight with pilot launch at Métropole du Grand Paris

  • EIT Urban Mobility’s co-funded innovation project, TACTIC (Transformative, Adaptive, and Collaborative Traffic Management for Improved Capacity), has officially initiated its pilot phase at the Métropole du Grand Paris.
  • The TACTIC project focuses on environmentally friendly last-mile delivery solutions that enable professionals to benefit from a system for sharing light commercial vehicles and cargo bikes for their goods deliveries and journeys. The town of Rueil-Malmaison will be trialling the solution until mid-2024.

TACTIC addresses the ever-growing challenges of urban traffic management by leveraging innovative technologies and adaptive strategies. The project aims to develop innovative solutions for optimising urban traffic flow, reducing congestion, and enhancing overall transportation efficiency. The Métropole du Grand Paris, known for its dynamic urban landscape and diverse transportation needs, was the perfect testing ground for the TACTIC project, providing real insights for refining and fine-tuning the developed technologies.

   

During the test period and in conjunction with the Greater Paris Metropolitan Area, the town of Rueil-Malmaison is working with Clem’ to test and launch the platform for sharing commercial vehicles. The vehicle and cargo bike, located respectively in Rueil town centre and on the outskirts of Suresnes, will be accessible via the Clem Mobi application.

The project’s success at the Métropole du Grand Paris could pave the way for wider implementation across European urban centres, offering a blueprint for intelligent and adaptive traffic management systems. As cities grapple with the complexities of urban mobility, TACTIC demonstrates how collaborative efforts and transformative technologies can shape the future of transportation in metropolitan areas. The outcomes of the pilot phase will contribute to the ongoing discourse on sustainable and efficient urban mobility solutions.

About the TACTIC project  

TACTIC creates an innovative solution that brings economic, environmental, and social value to the last-mile logistics business, involving different stakeholders in the local commerce logistics chain. The solution consists of connecting local commerce, green logistics services and the end user through the development and integration of the following services and products:

  • e-vehicle sharing app: app that connects local commerce (B2B) and citizens (B2C) with zero-emission vehicles for logistics purposes.
  • green logistics operation: use of cargo bikes and e-vans for last-mile delivery.
  • marketplace for local commerce: technology integration between an e-commerce marketplace platform and sustainable delivery service providers to offer local market users access to delivery services in sustainable vehicles.

TACTIC is led by Factual, developed by Hermeneus World, Vanapedal and Clem’, and two living labs: Barcelona City Council and the Métropole du Grand Paris.

S+LOADZ: Transforming Urban Logistics in France

  • Developed under the umbrella of the 2021 Innovation call of EIT Urban Mobility, S+LOADZ project pretends to accelerate the shift to sustainable and smart city logistics.
  • A new digital solution is being developed to manage loading and delivery zones. The French cities of Paris and Argenteuil are two of the four cities that test this innovative solution. 

Paris, 26 October 2022 – S+LOADZ, Sustainable Digital Loading and Delivery Zones, is a 1-year project for EIT Urban Mobility under the innovation programme 2021 of Sustainable City Logistics. This project is developed jointly between 5 European commercial partners, two research institutes and four European cities.

The S+LOADZ project is adapting and piloting the Parkunload solution, a digital platform to control, regulate, monitor, and analyse logistics operations’ loading and delivery zones in urban centres. The platform has three types of end-users: 1) cities, 2) drivers, and 3) traffic agents who transform the delivery/loading activities in urban centres. Through the cities’ interface, cities can virtually manage the rules of the game for the temporary parking of logistics vehicles operating in city centres. 

In 2022, S+LOADZ is being rolled out in 4 cities, including Paris, Argenteuil, Vic, and Ankara. In particular, the city of Paris has been testing this innovation since October 2022 for six months in 160 parking areas for loading and unloading activities located in the 10th arrondissement.   The pilot started in October 2022 and has been built with the support of Gustave Eiffel University and the Metropole du Grand Paris. The city is implementing 100 digital, smart and sustainable loading/delivery zones in their 10th District.

   

On 26 and 27 October, all members of the consortium and EIT Urban Mobility visited Paris and Argenteuil to participate in the official launch of the pilot project, together with the 10th arrondissement and city officials. There, Paris was recognise as an innovative Living Lab for the transition towards more sustainable urban mobility in Europe.
