Awakening on the Last Mile – New Opportunities for City Logistics

New study analyses the challenges facing liveable cities and their solutions.

Holistic concepts are needed

It has never been easier for consumers to order goods online. However, consumers and cities in Germany are paying a high price for this convenience – transport systems are not designed to handle the rapidly increasing traffic of goods on the last mile and there is not enough room for cargo handling in the city. Congestion and late deliveries are the results. In addition, the nuisance of noise and pollution is increasing. In its recent study, PwC analyses the pressing challenges and puts forward solutions for the liveable cities of tomorrow.

“In the future, not only will shipment volume increase drastically, delivery complexity will too. New product groups, such as chilled foods, place high demands on logistics. Things are getting even tighter and more time-critical on the last mile.”
