Transforming the Final 50 Feet of Delivery :: Third Annual Tech Day Challenge

When: December 10, 2019; 1-4 p.m.
Where: Husky Union Building, UW Seattle campus

Call for proposals is now open! Due August 15, 2019. https://forms.gle/KNEPqrFWCvkwduGp8

The Urban Freight Lab is hosting our third annual Tech Day: Transforming the Final 50 Feet of Delivery, a pitch competition for innovators improving the final leg of the urban goods delivery system—the Final 50 Feet, which begins at the load/unload space located at the curb, in an alley, or a private loading bay; and follows delivery operators as they maneuver sidewalks, intersections, and security in buildings; and ends when the customer receives their goods.

Four finalists will be selected to pitch their solutions at Tech Day to our Urban Freight Lab members (retailers, freight carriers, University of Washington researchers, and the Seattle Department of Transportation), and a panel of venture capitalists. Contestants pitching practical solutions to four key problems may be chosen for a pilot project.

We are looking for solutions for the following key problems:
1. Reducing parking seeking behavior in dense urban areas;
2. Improving commercial vehicle parking space productivity;
3. Reducing the number of failed first deliveries; and
4. Reducing dwell time for delivery vehicles.

About us: The University of Washington's Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics 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. We pilot and test research concepts and designs in our Urban Freight Lab (UFL). Our Final 50 Feet research program analyzes processes, develops potential solutions, and pilot tests operational improvements in the final leg of the urban goods delivery system.
