Urban logistics project SUCCESS finalized with toolkit

The SUCCESS (Sustainable Urban Consolidation CentrES for conStruction) project is ending on 30th of April 2018 and the whole SUCCESS team is thanking its project members and publishing a report in a final newsletter. Francesco Ferrero (Lead Partnership Officer - Mobility, Logistics and Smart Cities of LIST) was the Project coordinator and is also member of the Board of the Cluster for Logistics.

The Cluster congratulates the LIST team for this international project that included Romain Gaasch, who was Senior Account Manager Transport and Logistics for 15 years at CRP Henri Tudor/LIST and Cluster Board member, before his retirement end of April.

The SUCCESS project was launched in 2015 and financed by the European Union's H2020 programme which aims to reduce the negative impacts and costs of urban freight transport generated by the construction sector through improved Supply Chain Management and Construction Consolidation Centres (CCCs). It targets the construction industry as one of the largest consumers of urban freight transport. It aims to make the most of this sector’s enormous potential for improvement by exploring and testing new tools and methods, including the potential creation of Construction Consolidation Centres, in order to provide replicable solutions and improve the use of the existing transport infrastructure and the level of cooperation among the different stakeholders of the construction supply chain.

The Luxembourgish pilot in cooperation with Tralux aimed to transform an old factory, creating office, residential and commercial buildings in Neudorf, a district bordering the country’s major business centres.

The end of the EU funding will not imply the end of the activities

Their work had some impact on the real world, as at least two new CCCs will be implemented by SUCCESS consortium partners (a CCC for the new tramway line in Florence) or by stakeholders and by their own admission were inspired by it (the future Brussels Construction Consolidation Centre). Other opportunities are being discussed.

The project is investing in the development of tools that were not foreseen in the original project
plan but that we deem necessary to allow a better exploitation of our work by the interested stakeholders. A
basic version of these tools will soon be available on the project’s website.
