The Horizon project URBANE is looking for solutions for improving city logistics. In Helsinki, piloting in 2023-2024 will be focused especially on autonomous delivery solutions.

The URBANE project is aimed at developing a replication and scale-up model for successfully replicating smart green last-mile delivery solutions. It will use a PI-inspired innovation framework and digital twins with real life pilots in different cities around Europe. The activities in Helsinki are focused on developing and testing sustainable and viable last mile delivery solutions, and particularly autonomous systems. The Helsinki pilot partners include LMAD (Last Mile Autonomous Delivery, operating an autonomous system), DB Schenker (as the logistics operator) and Soben/TwinswHeel (as a provider of the autonomous platform) with Forum Virium Helsinki managing the pilot with the support of Helsinki/Mobility Lab.
