SUCCESS - Sustainable Urban Consolidation CentrES for conStruction

MG-5.2-2014 - Reducing impacts and costs of freight and service trips in urban areas
05/2015 - 04/2018
The main objective of SUCCES is to reduce the negative impacts of freight distribution in city urban areas and to reduce its costs. In order to do so, the project focuses on to what extent and how the Supply Chain Management and Construction Consolidation Centres (CCCs) concepts could bring about tested and replicable solutions (adequate collaborative frameworks and, as result, sustainable business models) to address problems in the construction supply chains, focusing on distribution networks, construction sites and reverse logistics. SUCCESS addresses the feasibility of optimising and integrating the supply chain (for example introducing supplier’s cooperation schemes, contractors’ integration arrangements, introducing optimization tools, etc.).
EN&TECH deals with technological optimisation in the area of Buildings and Constructions, Energy and ICT. The main activities of EN&TECH Centre are related to construction logistics. The EN&TECH main contirbution in the project will be on the design, development, and test of mathematical and optimization tools and in their evaluation and validation. EN&TECH will mainly be active in WP2 - Quantitative Analysis, Measures and Data Collection, WP3 - Methodologies and Optimisation tools (of which En&Tech is leader), WP4 - Solutions Design and Test, and WP5 - Evaluation and Validation.
