This hackathon sets out to develop new ways of interpreting the impacts of last-mile ‘business-to-business’ and ‘business-to-consumer’ parcel deliveries in London and determine ways in which the negative externalities caused could be mitigated.

This event is co-hosted by CitySprint, the EPSRC funded Freight Traffic Control project (www.ftc2050.com<http://www.ftc2050.com>), Transport for London (TfL) and Geovation.

This hackathon has been conceived through the Freight traffic Control 2050 project and its recent work with CitySprint looking into how last-mile parcel delivery can be made more sustainable.

THEMES:

1) The impacts of last mile parcel operations on the environment, energy and fuel consumption

  *   Mapping pollution and strategies for reducing it
  *   Respecting pedestrians and other road users in delivery areas
  *   The scope for using shared use facilities to ease kerbside congestion (e.g. shared public transport/freight drop-off points, communal locker boxes.)
  *   Reducing energy/fuel used per parcel
  *   Rethinking stem mileage and the benefits of using drop-off points
  *   Rethinking vehicle and infrastructure choices to serve the last mile

2) The impacts of last mile parcel operations on congestion, infrastructure and land use

  *   Reducing the numbers of vehicles needed for last-mile through collaborative working
  *   Minimising kerbside dwell time and optimizing drop-off locations
  *   Maximising vehicle capacity
  *   The impact of personal deliveries to workplaces
  *   Understanding how vehicle arrivals vary by land use
  *   Mapping deliveries/collections by postcode
  *   Extrapolating parcel demand across land use
