A brand new concept of sustainable urban logistics
Madrid, Paris, Moscow, Prague, Rome... Congestion in megalopolises is a reality. More than ever, deliveries of goods in the city centres are a major source of nuisances: pollution, noise, traffic jam... Rome is the first European city to take action to address this challenge by sharply restricting the access to its historic centre to combustion vehicles.
CityLogin is a concept developed by FM Logistic in collaboration with the Italian carrier Mag.Di. It is an innovative last kilometre solution based on mutualisation of logistics and transportation means. A collaborative, sustainable and original way of working that creates value for all supply chain stakeholders. Today, FM Logistic is extending this concept to other major European cities.
CityLogin's hub is just a few kilometers from the historic center of Rome. Its 500 m² dedicated to urban logistics ensure maximum responsiveness and limit distances travelled.
Touching 5,000 points of sales, the hub operates as a cross-docking platform as well as a proximity warehouse.
Today, 5 vehicles equipped with electric or hybrid technology perform 15 round trips per day. These deliveries are optimised with a dedicated IT tool connected to the municipal services for express access to restricted traffic zones.
Particularly suitable for urban logistics, these vehicles significantly reduce CO2 emissions and noise pollution.
The square metre prices in the heart of cities is high, the sale space in these areas must be optimised.
CityLogin has also a micro-logistics solution: storage and handling of small amounts of stocks combined with an online ordering system. Products are available in stores in only few hours.
