Modul III Urban Logistics
Although city logistics makes up a relatively small portion of urban traffic
it makes a major contribution to the success of cities. Future livability of cities will highly depend on the optimization of the exchange of goods and information. Therefore improving the efficiency of the 'first and last mile' of deliveries is already widely accepted and also mentioned in the 2011 “Transport White Paper” of the European Union, which gave significant attention to urban transport and set the goal of achieving essentially CO2 free city logistics in major urban centres by 2030.
But while the hardware in a transport operation is well understood and well managed, e.g. vehicles and depots. The ‘software’relates to organisational linkages, cooperation, thinking about marketing and packaging strategies and thinking about different ways of doing things.
