Gothenburg has a population of approximately 530,000 inhabitants. Due to its rapid growth and its impact on demand, the City has a long tradition of implementing different measures in the field of city logistics, as well as a large number infrastructure and building projects in the area, and is intent on creating an attractive, clean and safe city centre, where pedestrians and cyclists are separated from freight transport.
The objective of the city case is to reduce freight traffic in the city. This will be achieved through the development of a solution for consolidating goods destined for specific shopping areas, at a terminal on the outskirts of the city. This will increase the load factor of delivery vehicles and integrate the terminal with the existing Urban Consolidation Centre solution. For this specific shopping centre area, the goods flow will be analysed, a desired solution will be designed based on this data, and possible synergies and effects of integration with existing UCCs will be examined.
