Abstract

The transport sector has relevant impacts on economic and social aspects in the European Union. Freight transportation had an increasing role in this context with road transport that covers 45% of the total billion ton-kilometres in 2012. Cooperative intelligent transport systems (ITS) are promising solutions to adopt in order to increase the efficiency and reduce the environmental impacts of freight road transportation. In recent years, the European Community has founded several projects concerning C-ITS applications in freight transportation. A valuable evaluation of their impacts represents a new challenge. The current paper overviews the impact assessment methodologies applied in recent founded projects with the aim of defining an evaluation framework for the ongoing 7th Framework Program project “COoperative loGISTICS for sustainable mobility of goods (CO-GISTICS)”. Moreover, a complete case study of the Priority and Speed Advice service is detailed, highlighting both qualitative and quantitative aspects.
