Light electric freight vehicles as enablers for innovative sustainable urban last mile

Aminoff, A. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk

Description

Due to a rise in e-commerce and urbanization there is a rapid increase in last mile deliveries in the Nordic countries and internationally. This pace may increase due to the Corona crisis where many choose to shop on-line in order to avoid crowds. In this session we discuss the possibilities of light electric freight vehicles (LEFVs) and as an extension automatized delivery vehicles in last-mile deliveries as an answer to some of these challenges. In this interactive session, we will also discuss the role of cities and regions in this development. The session is based on the project: iSmile - Innovative sustainable urban last mile - small vehicles and business models, funded by Nordic Innovation.
