The Emilia Romagna Region (RER) has been involved in the city logistics field since 2002, both through EU INTERREG projects and dedicated regional policies. In particular, the region initiated an ongoing debate and developed models on city logistics within the EU CITY PORTS and MEROPE projects, and introduced a regional law financing city logistics interventions which involved all the main regional cities. As SUGAR Lead Partner, RER will share its experience in terms of city logistics methodologies, studies, tools and practices (regulation, technologies, models) within SUGAR. The problem sharing approach of RER in city logistics, developed both at the EU and regional level, will be a valuable input to the project.
RER will strictly cooperate with the Institute for Transport and Logistics which is the SUGAR EU technical coordinator
