Published Oct 27, 2016

Professor José Holguin-Veras from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York presented the outcome from case studies on delivering of goods and supplies to restaurants in a few cities around the world.

One way to reduce emissions and congestion in cities is to use night hours for deliveries in cities. At October 20th Professor José Holguin-Veras from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York held a breakfast seminar at ITRL, and presented recent results showing that night time deliveries can reduce CO2 emissions from urban freight transports with more than 50%. He also shared best practices and learnings from pilots off-hour urban freight pilots in New York and Sao Paulo and many other cities, totally 200. With this experience he gave us great input to our ongoing Stockholm Pilot.
