London is a thriving city and as the capital grows, the demands placed on business to get their goods and services to their customers naturally increases. However, space is at a premium and balancing the demands for housing, green space and public realm often conflicts with the functional needs of a city.
With the growth of e-commerce, retailers and their delivery partners need to reconfigure their supply chain, and new residential and commercial development will increase the need for rapid delivery for the ‘last mile’ service. This only heightens the importance of siting commercial development ‘amongst’ or ‘near to’ urban concentrations of populations and businesses. The last mile service is important for increasing efficiencies in London’s supply chain, and it also has a key role in managing the number of vehicles on London’s roads and the air quality impacts associated with these.
For this year’s Green Sky Thinking Design Competition SEGRO and XCO2 pose the question “What is the future of last-mile logistics?”
