Abstract: 
Consolidation schemes are a popular measure in city logistics. The most common of
these consolidation schemes
are Urban Consolidation Centres (UCCs). However, many innovative experiences have been performed in the
cities across the globe, offering a large panel of alternative schemes. In particular, many experiences have
focused on down
scaling the consolidation effort by bundling the goods much closer to the reception point.
This paper aims in offering a closer view into different alternatives that exist regarding the physical micro
-
consolidation of goods and to provide guidelines on se
lecting the most appropriate solutions for a specific city
area.
In order to do this, we will develop a transferability methodology, based on the study of case studies across the
Europe. We will build on the current transferability methodologies developed
under several EU projects and
adjust them for the specific case of the micro
-
consolidation measures. This will lead us to the definition of the
most important features for the transferability of the micro
-
consolidation measures. Based on this, we will
est
ablish for each feature a list of
attributes
for the transferability of the micro
-
consolidation devices, which will
be prioritized according to their importance for the transferability success.
