The last mile:

General Context

The last mile is the last stage in the process of delivering products to customers. It is one of the most
polluting stages in delivery logistics.Package distribution is expected to represent 47% of urban mobility by 2025.

Impact on the environment
Last-mile deliveries have a high impact on the environment, since they increase traffic and produce

60% of the world population Is expected to live in urban environments, increasing congestion by almost 30% by 2030.
According to the WEF, the demand for last-mile deliveries will increase by 78% worldwide by 2030.
In this context, transport and ecommerce companies will need to adapt their urban distribution systems,moving toward a more digital and sustainable model.

The last mile


The last mile problem

deliveries are collapsing cities

Last-mile deliveries are collapsing cities and generating a huge carbon footprint because the system runs on a legacy structure that penalizes the world’s fastest-growing industry.

Traditional home-delivery methods are inefficient and not customer-driven. They create a huge carbon
footprint and exacerbate congestion in cities, with a high cost for the environment and transportation
companies. ​

C02 Emissions

The Last mile problem

The Last mile problem

Due to the large growth of ecommerce, the carbon footprint of package delivery is growing constantly
and is expected to reach around 5.5 billion metric tons in 2032.

Negative environmental impact:

1. 25% of CO2 emissions in cities are produced by last-mile deliveries.
2. 20% of traffic in urban areas is caused by freight transport, mainly from ecommerce.
3. Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have increased by almost 50% since 1990.

Pollution is one of the main risk factors contributing to disease and death worldwide.
