Are we at risk of the city centers being overloaded with city terminals, drop-off points and micro-hubs and increased traffic on city streets? - MIXMOVE has the right solution.
Dr. Jan Tore Pedersen from MIXMOVE recently presented a smarter solution for urban logistics based on neutral public terminals. The presentation was part of a members' meeting in Bullby.net - a trade union political arena for the long lines of urban development. Pedersen's ideas about how the municipalities can get involved in freight traffic in the cities received applause from the Bullby network.
Sustainable freight transport depends on goods owners, logistics operators and carriers, but the municipality itself should also take on a more active role.
EU projects within urban logistics
MIXMOVE participates in EU projects concerning urban logistics and passenger transport in the cities and believes Norwegian cities need new measures.
The municipalities must get involved in freight traffic and not only be concerned with passenger traffic. Maybe, one day, the combined busses will return, like it was in the past - the bus that brought both people, mail and packages.
The goal is to reduce traffic and make the best possible use of the units. One of the measures is to combine people and goods in the same unit via mobility points.
