What is an Urban Logistics Hub?
‘Urban logistics hubs’ are distribution facilities located within an urban area to fulfil the ‘last mile’ of the supply chain. They range in size and nature of operations. Larger sites hosting fleets of electric vans are referred to as Logistics Hubs.
What is a Micro Site?
‘Urban logistics hubs’ are distribution facilities located within an urban area to fulfil the ‘last mile’ of the supply chain. They range in size and nature of operations. Smaller sites hosting cargo bikes are referred to as Micro Sites.
What are examples of hubs in practise?
There are already a variety of established Urban Logistics Hubs in central London. In December 2020, the City of London Corporation approved its first Last Mile Logistics Hub for Amazon Logistics. Parcel delivery service DPD provides distribution services from a logistics hub in Westminster, utilising a fleet of 10 electric vans and eight micro-vehicles. Another example is Ecofleet, a business which operates a last mile delivery and consolidation service using cargo bikes from a micro-logistics hub in south London.
