Purpose and goal

The project aims in its extension to create a commercially sustainable, coordinated goods distribution in the city´s inner parts which simultaneously meets the users´ needs for efficient transport and services with minimal environmental impact. In the initiation step, delivery goal has been to develop an effective business model for coordinated goods distribution with new and innovative services to customers stores combined with transport to the city´s public activities based on users´ needs.

Results and expected effects

In the initialization phase has a business model for coordinated goods distribution based on users´ needs been developed. If this is implemented in the next step the effect is expected to be cleaner air in the inner city, smaller carbon footprint, improved road safety, reduced energy consumption, more efficient supply chain and extended service to the city´s commercial center. Overall, this leads to an attractive urban environment that can facilitate investment in increased densification of the city center and an improved urban life.

Approach and implementation

In the initialization phase, the focus of the private users has been on the retail trade in the city and property companies operating there. Through market analysis and surveys have different services and offerings to retail and real estate companies have been developed. These have then been repackaged into different sections in order to be implemented in stages as increased insight. The legal aspects of coordination between private and public flows have been highlighted. Freight Network has been used as a reference focus group for this work.
