The aim of the project is the development of a city-wide, two-stage logistics concept with micro-hubs, "Grätzl"-hubs and City Distribution Centers for the distribution of urban small consignments through cross-industry business co-operations. Sustainable urban development can hereby be improved by enriching the micro-hubs with additional social functions, thereby counteracting problems in urban land use and exploitation. In the inner-city area, the dynamic use of cargo bikes for the last mile should be carried out, with a sensible complement of low-emission trucks. In addition, optimized cooperation and operator models for the hubs will be determined, as well as a system-level functional verification with real data using the example of the City of Vienna.
