Urban Logistics in the Autumn

City logistics has been a topic with a good variety of activities this autumn.

Shared, electric cargo bikes are a solution that have been tested before. Residents have liked them and wanted more of such alternatives to use. This summer and autumn, residents in Jätkäsaari were able to test cargo bikes in a pilot by Colossus Finland / Nezeco, as part of the HOPE (Healthy Outdoor Premises for Everyone) project.

Delivery of pharmacy products by drone: In one of the pilots Third Space Autonomy, together with FutureSky and Flyby Guys, provided quick deliveries from the Lauttiksen Apteekki pharmacy by drone across the sea between the districts of Lauttasaari and Jätkäsaari.

Another more technology driven pilot is robot deliveries to the end users at virtual pickup points by LMAD.

To enable more and more novel solutions, the Logistics Accessibility Data project is working on improving logistics services through better and more comprehensive accessibility data.
