Freight Traffic Control 2050: transforming the energy demands of last-mile urban freight through collaborative logistics

Project: Research

Description

Freight transport currently accounts for 16% of all road vehicle activity in our cities and affects us all through its significant contribution to traffic congestion and poor air quality and is predicted to increase due to online shopping and emergence of on-demand delivery services. This project aims to counteract such negative trends through gaining a better understanding of the collective impacts of carrier fleets on-street, and the potential benefits resulting from collaborative delivery vehicle scheduling, combining deliveries to use fewer vehicles.
