SAILOR (Smart lAst mILe cOmmeRce)
|Coordinator||ITSdalarna utvecklings AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 3 140 000|
|Project duration||July 2016 - June 2018|
Purpose and goal
The objective is to implement SAILOR to achieve increased cost efficiency of the parcel delivery companies via a higher proportion of first-time delivery success, faster access to (un)loading zones and better management of reverse logistics, greater adoption of flexible time and place handovers, and reductions in emissions in urban areas, less congestion and less stressful working conditions for employees of parcel delivery companies. Moreover to verify a prototype and evaluate the business model of SAILOR when implemented in Amsterdam, Borlänge, Graz, and San Sebastian.
Expected results and effects
It is expected SAILOR will generate a deeper understanding on how to design applications for real time last mile home delivery systems. Indicators for the demonstration cities are: 20% reduction in cost for last mile deliveries; 20% increase in market acceptance of direct parcel handover rather than via parcel pick-up points; a reduction of CO2 emissions of at least 25% is expected and we expect a time reduction of 5% in a delivery round trip with the indirect effect of less congestion in the cities and less stressful working conditions for the employees of parcel delivery companies.
Planned approach and implementation
The market conditions in the demonstration cities will be mapped and analyzed and the baseline values for the key indicators are retrieved and the technical platform for SAILOR is developed regarding the back-office system and the app based information sharing. Business models for the demos are shaped drawing on the STRAIGHTSOL. Thereafter, the prototype of SAILOR is verified and evaluated in the four demonstration cities.
