CRP’s Last Mile Logistics research welcomed by industry press14th August 2015 / Posted by CRP Team
CRP’s LaMiLo project has both trialled and undertaken research into different approaches to solve the problems associated with the last mile of urban deliveries. This work has been welcomed by industry website ‘Freight in the City’ which identifies that UK cities can adopt viable last-mile delivery schemes for no cost by tapping into this existing LaMiLo research.
Urban logistics is an integral part of daily life; we want our goods and services to be available to us when they are needed. However, this delivery and servicing activity in cities leads to problems of air pollution, noise, traffic congestion, and road safety. These problems make our cities less economically competitive and less pleasant places to be.
