1.5 CM / LU Pending

It is almost hard to believe how many items we can have arrive at our doorstep, sometimes within minutes, at the simple click of a button. This session will shed light on both the opportunities and challenges associated with urban delivery from all sectors: public, private, and academic. Hear from researchers at University of Washington’s Urban Freight Lab who are working with carriers to reduce dwell time and missed deliveries, as well from representatives from the private sector, including UberEats and Postmates, who are working to meet customer demand for fast deliveries while simultaneously trying to maximize delivery efficiency and pushing the boundaries of innovation. Kelly Rula from the Seattle Department of Transportation will moderate the discussion and will highlight some of the opportunities and challenges of urban delivery from a city perspective.
