Consorzio Trasportatori Veneziani Riuniti (CTVR)

This project, sponsored by the Consorzio Trasportatori Riuniti Veneziani, located in Venice, Italy assessed the current patterns of the cargo delivery system and demand for goods within the city of Venice, and suggested: new routings and boat assignments based on a point- to- point delivery system, citywide dock locations, new warehouse plans, and loading procedures. Additionally, this project surveyed cargo workers to quantify the widespread support for such dramatic changes within the current system.
