Market research for Dublin’s Last Mile Delivery procurement challenge found four very different ways to solve congestion caused by urban deliveries:
- Logistics Management Software,
- Autonomous Delivery Vehicles,
- On-Demand Delivery and
- Electric Cargo Bikes.
1,053 suppliers were found that could deliver these solutions using a variety of financing models such as traditional service contracts, co-funding through advertising, business-to-consumer services and software as a service. The city deployed a combination of five solutions as a pilot in 2019.
