Session: Supply Chain Sustainability / Green Supply Chain
Sustainability is not only about “greenfy” the fleets
Package delivery companies are facing a paradox: they are constantly having to deliver more and more parcels in cities that are, at the same time, increasingly concerned by the impact of their activities (traffic congestion, pollution). Cleaner vehicles, while necessary, are not enough. It will not prevent carriers from saturating public space and may even make things worse ( EVs, ebikes and walkers – means multiplying urban hubs and “vehicles” in city centers) with obvious consequences regarding CO2 and pollutant emissions on the environment. As a consequence, we think that with the appropriate solutions, as connected parcel boxes in residential buildings, it is possible to deliver home, safely and efficiently, packages during the night.
