Sustainable city logistics: Combining e-bikes with flexible storage systems

In order to find a feasible solution to reduce the delivery of goods by cars and trucks in urban areas without lowering the quality of delivery services, a new EU-funded project focused on Munich will be carried out in collaboration with various types of logistic service providers. The plan is to test out several kinds of boxes and logistic systems in cooperation with delivery companies. This includes the installation of three boxes for temporary storage of parcels, which will be located at the boundaries of the city centre. Once this test has been completed, additional logistics companies will be sought to use the flexible storage boxes and obtain a shift to cargo bike delivery within Munich’s city centre.
