Challenge / Goal

As a pre-commercial procurement challenge, the Last Mile Delivery project sought to identify tech solutions that can improve urban deliveries. It was hoped that such an action would also help to reduce congestion, improve air quality, reduce noise pollution and increase road safety.


Following the challenge launch, six companies successfully secured Phase 1 funding to develop their solutions. A wide range of exciting pilots have taken place in both Dublin and Belfast. Some solutions provided consolidation hubs from where deliveries into the city centre in green transport modes could be made, such as e-vehicles, e-bikes and cargo bikes. Others investigated the use of new technologies to digitise kerbside bookings and better manage loading and unloading. Further innovations saw the design and development of new prototypes of pedal powered and walked delivery vehicles, these will allow for the trialling of new forms of low emission deliveries in the inner city.
