The Last Mile Delivery Service uses electric vehicles for the 'last mile' of the parcel delivery journey. A requisite element of a Last Mile Delivery (LMD) service is an 'Urban Consolidation Centre' (UCC); the UCC takes in all the parcels from the various national carriers and sorts them for delivery by E-vehicles.
In all cities there are multiple national carriers attempting to deliver parcels often to the same buildings as their competitors. This is an inefficient system that contributes to air and noise pollution. The UCC enables the consolidation of ALL parcel deliveries from national and local carriers and thus a logical order for an urban delivery round including the time requirements of clients / carrier. The addition of EVs for Last Mile Delivery ensures that air and noise pollution is kept to a minimum.
