Deliverable 5.1 aims at developing a holistic evaluation methodology based on a comprehensive project assessment framework. The evaluation methodology indicates at what extent the application of CityMove to a real urban context will improve the freight transport and logistics operation, safety, including performance, energy-consumption, technical reliability, cost-effectiveness, externalities (environmental and noise impacts). The CityMove project aims at developing a new vehicle concept for the Delivery of Goods and Urban Services. CityMove is aimed at enhancing freight transport logistics industry towards long-term efficiency and growth, having an impact on safety, congestion, air pollution, noise pollution anddependence on fossil fuels. A goods delivery vehicle is typically designed around a general architecture, designed not specifically for urban areas. CityMove is instead aimed at developing a new vehicle architecture specifically designed for the optimisation of the freight transport in urban areas.
