ELUD - Urban logistical efficiency of sustainable food

ELUD - Urban logistical efficiency of sustainable food

The aim of this project is to offer a methodology providing a framework for simulating scenarios, as well as a set of indicators and tools for evaluating and analysing the sustainable performance of players involved in the logistics and transport of fresh products in order to estimate the sustainability of new urban food delivery systems, particularly to meet a growing demand for ecoresponsible products and services. These methods are built from various, often heterogeneous, sources of available data, such as: (1) data from transport firms, mainly GPS tracking data collected by transport companies and/or these firms' transport plans; (2) city traffic data (available for Greater Lyon in open data format); (3) quantitative data from surveys or produced by scientific models; (4) warehouse or platform data obtained from operating software after anonymisation; (5) additional data (quantitative or qualitative) specific to the type of product and its logistics system from interviews and/or technical documents.
