Hubs for Last Mile Delivery Solutions

The HALLO project is creating shared urban consolidation and distribution centres (UCDCs) through a series of pilots in Barcelona and Stockholm. In Barcelona, the centres are being implemented in municipalities bordering the Low Emission Zone (LEZ) in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (AMB).

The HALLO project is creating shared urban consolidation and distribution centres (UCDCs) through a series of pilots in Barcelona and Stockholm. In Barcelona, the centres are being implemented in municipalities bordering the Low Emission Zone (LEZ) in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (AMB). In Stockholm, the pilots are demonstrating complementary activities including implementing fossil-fuel free delivery logistics in the district of Södermalm; testing innovative delivery solutions across Stockholm; planning and testing a micro-terminal for logistics and other services in Södermalm; as well as holding a stakeholder dialogue to outline a roadmap for the future development of fossil-free logistics in Stockholm.  

In addition, the project is also compiling a roadmap detailing location planning, business models and implementation challengesto facilitate the replication of the approaches in other cities. 

Challenge


This project is a response to the Sustainable City Logistics challenge (with a focus on last mile distribution).

Main Objective


HALLO aims to alleviate environmental and traffic problems in urban areas through the creation of shared urban consolidation and distribution centres.

Output


Creation of UCDCs around the LEZ in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona and in the city of Stockholm operated by local cyclo-logistics companies.
