Final 50 Feet Research Program

The Final 50 Feet Research Program: The Last Leg of the Urban Goods Delivery System

The Urban Freight Lab’s 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. The final 50 feet begins at the load/unload space located at the curb, in an alley, or a private loading by; tracks delivery people as they maneuver sidewalks, intersections and security in buildings, and ends when the customer receives their goods.

Several of this project’s most promising low-cost and high-value recommendations will be tested in the SCTL Urban Freight Lab – a living laboratory comprised of retailers, technology companies, goods delivery firms, building owner/operators, and cities.
