Integrated last-mile urban logistics with demand-supply matching platforms
Part of the program ‘Low-Emission Adaptive last mile logistics supporting on demand economy through Digital Twins’ (LEAD). This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020.
The mission of the Living Lab in The Hague is to connect different stakeholders involved in the urban logistic system in the city centre of The Hague to provide a more efficient parcel service with less environmental impact that improves the liveability of the city area. It will do this by creating platform linkages, using a smart connector that can act between platforms, allowing exchange of data to make door-to-door chains from different services. Platforms and hubs will the system hyperconnected, allowing a shared use of resources and improving the offer for consumers, while reducing the negative externalities.
The objective of introducing Digital Twins in last mile logistics is to improve the operation and efficiency of parcel delivery, reduce costs and externalities through forecasting and predictions of future states and support advanced decision making through the entire logistics lifecycle, while also fostering stakeholder participation via reliable real-life information.
