Description: Postal companies, including PostNL, make a large number of vehicle trips in cities, contributing to vehicle emissions, congestion, and other negative impacts. In Amsterdam, the EU-funded CIVITAS CityLab project, including PostNL as industrial partner, investigated several possible solutions. Ultimately, the chosen solution was the use of several micro-hubs in the city centre in combination with innovative freight bikes. The implementation has been considered such a success - both in terms of environmental and financial benefits - that PostNL is upscaling the solution in Amsterdam and transferring it to other Dutch cities.

Currently there are seven micro-hubs operational in Amsterdam. These are located at existing PostNL locations and at locations shared with other logistics service providers. Between 50 and 60 freight bikes operate over the 'last mile' leading to a reduction of around 2000 van stops and a significant reduction in negative effects. A roll-out of this size with micro-hubs and bikes has never before been achieved.

During the presentations, you will hear the details of the concept, future plans, and the experiences in the CityLab project. A site visit in the afternoon offers the chance to see a micro-depot and freight bikes in operation.
