Efficient, sustainable freight delivery across urban areas
As a result of increasing freight traffic, these urban nodes need to cope with challenges such as congestion, poor air quality, noise and road safety risks. Vital Nodes wants to improve European interconnection, and to develop sustainable solutions for the last mile.
Vital Nodes delivers evidence-based recommendations for the integration of the urban nodes into the trans European transport network (TEN-T) corridors. It addresses multi and intermodality between long-distance and last-mile freight logistics.
Vital Nodes establishes a long-lasting expert network by conducting workshops at the nodes of the network. The Vital Nodes project is funded by the Horizon 2020 Programme, and runs for 24 months until November 2019.

Supporting the deployment of innovations in the urban nodes, while establishing a long-lasting European expert network
The methodology analyses along six dimensions, incorporating the specifics of every urban node.
Vital Nodes applies a stepwise approach and will approach the 88 urban nodes of the TEN-T network in four steps
