Micro Logistics

Micro logistics relates to the introduction of urban facilities that are developed at a very small scale. Its purpose can be various, including holding local stock close to consumers; loading and charging of alternative goods delivery vehicles (e.g. cargo-bikes, electric vans); consolidating delivery volumes of different retailers and logistics service providers. Micro facilities can also be explained as centrally located small facilities within residential areas where they serve one or more local neighbourhoods, i.e. the end-destination of e-commerce supply chains. Accordingly, the terms “neighbourhood logistics” or “proximity logistics” are increasingly used to discuss the concept, advantages and strategies of micro logistics facilities in the city.
