Challenges and Solutions for Delivering the Last Mile

When: Thursday, June 4, 2020 -- 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET

This webinar was developed by the ITE Urban Goods Movement Standing Committee and TSMO council. 

Webinar Description:

The last link of the supply chain is the most challenging. With the explosion of e-commerce and the advent of just-in-time deliveries, the demand for goods in urban areas is increasing. Simultaneously, an increasingly number of users are competing for the limited urban infrastructure needed to perform such deliveries.

This webinar will explore work being undertaken by the University of Washington’s Urban Freight Lab to study these problems and explore possible solutions by piloting innovative urban logistics strategies. The presenters will discuss the Urban Freight Lab’s innovative approach to freight research, managing curb space for deliveries, and implementing parcel lockers for e-commerce deliveries.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

  • Identify urban freight challenges and real word solutions
  • Explain the impact of e-commerce on communities
  • Managing curb space for deliveries
  • Describe new research methods that focus on linking research to implementation.
