Accelerating the ecological transition and access to sustainable mobility through a partnership between metropolises, cities and districts fostering the dialogue on science, technology and innovation to contribute to a global strategy tackling climate change problems is fundamental. In the contemporary city, due to the conflict of scales, we must understand how to relate metropolitan scale to the local one. Starting from the metropolitan dynamics connected to the logistics sector, one of the main territory negative impact makers, the paper introduces the Metropolitan Cartography tool to obtain a meta-project necessary to achieve sustainable development by dealing with SDGs applications and bringing together different disciplinary knowledge. The research field of action is two transects of metropolitan landscape, which identify two possible logistics meta-districts. The first is in the Città Metropolitana di Milano a West-East transect from Milan to Melzo, which is intersected by the second, South-North, which starts in the Piacenza, Emilia Romagna Region intermediate city. The research project first aim is to produce a cartography tool able to define the circumstances of sustainable plan and design of the entire logistics meta-district transects studying the mobility’s impacts. The second research's aim argues about the necessary condition to produce a sustainable local archipelago system‘s design project linked to the logistics meta-district’s transect “last mile” that can be directly managed by the local communities. Nevertheless, it must be designed to be connected to the metropolitan grid.
