Urban distribution and cyclelogistics

Context

Last mile logistics is a major challenge in the competitive strategy of distribution companies. Logistics costs increase exponentially, but the stakes are also high in terms of reliability and speed in new consumption habits (e-commerce).

In a changing city, the transport of goods is less considered by mobility policies because it is of less interest than the mobility of people. However, it represents an essential component of urban congestion and air pollution.

Urban distribution presents important challenges linked to the development of e-commerce, the evolution of engines and the rebalancing of public space. Appropriate management of urban distribution requires an approach and skills different from the management of people's mobility. We also observe the enormous potential of cyclologistics to contribute to urban deliveries, however, this sector needs to become more professional and be better integrated into urban policies.
