Executive summary
 Transportation is an essential service for the society. Products must be shipped from factories to markets. With increasing traffic volumes in urban areas and consequent traffic congestion, it is becoming difficult for freight transport to get into urban center areas. Freight transport in cities represents from 10 to 18% of the road traffic causing 40% of air pollution and noise emissions (COST 321).

MOSCA aims at highly reducing several problems affecting freight distribution in European metropolitan areas, such as booking and reservation procedures, vehicle routing, loading/unloading areas reservations, emergency management support, effective and efficient multimodal inter-connection.
