The increase in e-commerce and parcel deliveries are causing congestion and pollution challenges in cities worldwide. More and more European cities are expected to regulate delivery traffic in and out of bigger cities. In order to meet these challenges, we need Smart City Logistics. Deliveries need to be consolidated and companies need to work together to find the most efficient and sustainable way to deliver goods into city centers.
With MIXMOVE's digital capabilities, we can enable consolidated transport of goods in cities, minimising the number of vehicles and ensuring that these are well utilised. Collaboration between logistics networks is the key to greener city centers.
With increased urbanisation and rapidly growing parcel shipping volumes due to e-commerce, optimised city logistics solutions are important in order to reduce our carbon footprint and create greener city centeres.
By enabeling reconstructing of cargo from multiple shippers at parcel level in all hubs, we ensure that logistics units are fully utilised when leaving a city hub. This results in a more environmentally-friendly delivery in the city centre.
All types of urban distribution stakeholders, from operators operating large hubs in the outskirts to small operators moving cargo in the inner city, need to work together to limit the volume of big trucks inside the cities.
