Track outline

The increasing online sales through web-stores or marketplaces and the rise of population concentration in cities have fostered the adoption of innovative urban logistics models built on offering multiple pickup locations and multiple delivery options as well as an overall increase in the transport demands. Such dramatic impacts call for greater sustainability in the last-mile supply chain, and for the design and implementation of solutions falling into the framework of the Physical Internet initiative.

The last-mile supply chain is affected by multi-faceted problems, which involve multiple stakeholders. Hence, this track addresses the emerging paradigms for innovative and sustainable solutions for the last mile delivery in urban areas in multiple perspectives and with different methodological approaches.
