Tech Day Challenge 2018 :: Technological Disruption and Innovation in Last-Mile Delivery

When: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, December 4, 2018
Where: University of Washington Seattle campus

Global logistics spending is expected to reach $10.6 trillion in 2020, with transportation accounting for the majority (70%), according to “Urban Logistics Opportunities—Last-Mile Innovation” by Frost & Sullivan." About 40% of the overall logistics costs are associated with the last mile that are forcing providers to come up with newer innovative solutions to deliver packages within cities.

Tech Day brings together emerging tech companies and innovators developing solutions to urban goods delivery problems in the final leg of delivery -- the last mile or the Final 50 Feet.

We are looking for new technologies that will:

- improve truck parking space productivity in the city’s commercial load zones,
- reduce failed first deliveries, and
- reduce dwell time for delivery vehicles.

Four finalists will be selected to pitch their solutions to a panel of senior executives in our Urban Freight Lab, potential investors, and representatives from the City of Seattle for possible inclusion in a pilot test project. 

Call for proposals coming soon.
