Now this is thinking about freight consolidation in the right way!
Next month DHL will begin using cargobikes in Oslo city centre aided by a micro-consolidation centre.
Rather than using three vans, DHL will be using one van, drop the parcels at the hub and the last mile will be taken care by cargobike riders.
The Hub is a shipping container provided by the City rent free for the duration of the pilot until 2018.
The Department of Transport will analyse the results of the project and evaluate the costs/benefits.
