Containerisation is key to replacing vans with specialised last mile delivery vehicles. It makes the transfer of goods from a highway going motor vehicle to a light last mile delivery vehicle efficient and secure.
For 1000 kg EU pallets or roller cages with milk cartons, you need vans and trucks. For smaller deliveries, we need a smarter solution than oversized vehicles.
The transfer of goods from a motor vehicle or city hub to last mile vehicle takes less than 1 minute. One person can easily do the transfer.
Since the goods are transferred safely into the last mile container at big terminals the risk of damage and theft is reduced.
Technology like tracking and sensors can easily be added to your containers. Just add it to your fleet management solution and increase control.
As the containers are standardised, this enables to automate loading of the container on and off tracks and to be handled autonomously in city hubs.
The KoMoDo one-year project in Berlin is a city hub that enables the shift of goods from trucks to cargo bikes, replacing vans in last mile delivery.
