The urban consolidation terminal located 300 meters from the city center is supplied through normal means. Deliveries are then consolidated and loaded into three CNG trucks, which are then used to deliver the shops that participate to the system. Delivery movements are kept to a minimum in order to reduce impacts. Several key elements of urban freight distribution mitigation strategies are depicted on the above photo:
- Adapted vehicle using an alternative fuel (CNG).
- Dedicated delivery parking space.
- Rolling delivery carts.
