Description of Project: The Awaken Sleeping Assets Project (ASAP) has 3 goals: (1) to activate underused or inactive infrastructure or resources for sustainable urban logistics, (2) to provide testbeds for innovative urban logistics systems and (3) to combine these activities to build a new Sustainable Urban Logistics Planning Platform (SULP-Platform).

Cities, industry and research partners from Austria, France, Germany, and Sweden are gathering and processing information to build up an open-access knowledge base from European cities and regions. Based on in-depth evaluation of 14 existing and 11 further testbeds, ASAP aims to activate “sleeping” assets in the partner cities and to build a network of “follower” cities.
