Panel Introduction

City logistics is touching lives of millions people in the cities through its impact on the air quality, noise, traffic congestions and other factors. It has been subject of studies and concepts for decades, yet real-life improvements are very rare. Cities are already very densely built-up and logistics is unable to compete financially with housing development. Therefore logistics real estates are usually inconveniently located which creates less than ideal conditions for city logistics. Good news is there are more and more cities realizing this problem and on the other hand logistics providers are willing to join projects, that run in not ideal conditions, yet give them opportunity to test new concepts. This willingness has been accelerated in the recent two years, which confirmed strong trends toward e-commerce and home delivery. Key concept in city logistics are microhubs located near dense areas, allowing companies to cross-dock shipments from larger vans onto sustainable means of transport, such as cargo bikes, scooters or walking courier. In connection with electric vans this helps to remove as much of emissions and traffic congestions as possible. What are lessons learned from several working microhubs and sustainable last-mile services?
