Project Funder: Amazon
Principal Investigator(s): Dr. Anne Goodchild
Project Budget: $50,000
Project Timing: September 2020 to June 2021

Through synthesis of existing literature and interviews conducted with private and public stakeholders, this project aims to provide an overview of the barriers to achieving sustainable urban freight. The research will highlight key strategies that can enable sustainable last mile delivery in the urban environment and, importantly, outline the specific roadblocks to carrying out those strategies. This will help companies and public entities form sustainability plans and understand where collaboration between the two sectors in needed.

Project Funder: City of Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT)
Principal Investigator(s): Dr. Anne Goodchild
Project Budget: $125,000
Project Timing: September 2020 to March 2022

Project Funder: Urban Freight Lab
Principal Investigator(s): Dr. Anne Goodchild
Project Budget: $200,000
Project Timing: January 2020 to September 2021
The Urban Freight Lab's Common Microhub project provides an opportunity for members to test and evaluate urban logistics strategies on the ground in Seattle's Uptown neighborhood. As third-party logistics companies enter the last mile space and more cities commit to environmental focus and zero emission vision, the interest around creating logistics places in urban proximity is growing. The outcomes of this research can guide the development of future microhub implementations in other cities.
