 The objective of ParcelHack 2019:

Last mile parcel delivery is characterised by many independent players competing in an ‘everyone-delivers-everywhere’ culture, leading to much replication of vehicle activity.

ParcelHack sets out to develop new ways of interpreting the impacts of last mile parcel delivery in London and to determine ways in which the negative externalities caused could be mitigated.

Themes:

  • The impacts of last mile parcel operations on the environment, energy and fuel consumption
  • The impacts of last mile parcel operations on congestion, infrastructure and land use
