The Center is the go-to place to analyze and solve urban goods delivery, sustainability, logistic hubs and ports, and freight system performance management problems that overlay private and public spaces and control. The Center pilots and tests research concepts and designs in our Urban Freight Lab (UFL).
Launched in October 2016, the UFL is a living laboratory comprised of: retailers, urban truck freight carriers, technology companies supporting transportation and logistics, multifamily residential and retail/commercial building developers and operators, and the City of Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT). Lab members act to improve the management of both public and private operations of urban goods delivery systems by engaging in strategic applied research and identifying priority problems for future research projects.
