The LIMCO-project’s objective has been to generate new knowledge and innovations towards smarter logistics management and transport planning, more sustainable business models for Norwegian transport/logistics firms, and efficient ways of utilizing new data sources. Through two capturing solutions for vehicle data and extensive collaboration with participating firms, we performed a range of analyses on four themes: Driving behavior, fuel consumption and environment, vehicle movements and transport costs. The project has yielded methodological progress on converting GPS-data to useful information on trips and loading/unloading stops. Also insights in cost drivers of transport has been improved, through firm-specific analyses of cost and environmental effects of alternative logistics organization and service levels. The project further assessed eco-driving’s potential for emission reductions. Insights from the LIMCO-project provide a basis for new logistics solutions, improved understanding of freight transport’s complex needs and activities in cities, and for improving important inputs to the National Freight Model.
