Sustainable urban freight distribution. For a better economy, environment and society
Urban freight distribution is the link in the supply chain that operates inside cities with the aim of supplying business establishments as well as the end customer. A way of operating that has been gaining presence and importance as changes in consumption habits and advances in technology have led to e-commerce registering double-digit year-on-year growth in recent years. At the same time, according to the latest data from the CNMC (2020), the sectors that have increased their sales the most during the Covid-19 pandemic are the traditional ones (food, clothes and leisure items) that require logistical processes.
