Switching to off-peak delivery times reduced city congestion
In some businesses – like supermarkets and restaurants – local restrictions on nighttime deliveries leave distributors no choice but to dispatch trucks during morning rush hours. But lifting these rules could reduce peak traffic volumes and increase transport efficiency, according to a recent study.
Due to the ongoing trend of urbanisation, the impact of supply deliveries on citizens and the city itself is increasing in terms of congestion, noise and emissions. Researching the use case of off peak deliveries together with silent solutions for transportation and load handling, a guideline is being developed on how to improve the liveability in urban areas, without compromising efficiency.
