A new MEISTER study has been published by Málaga city, as one of the three pilot sties, under the title “Preparation of a logistics study in compliance with the requirements of the MEISTER project”.
The Malaga pilot, within the MEISTER project, focuses on three areas within the city: a priority one, in the Center, and two additional, in the Cruz de Humilladero and Carretera de Cádiz districts.
The Historic City Center of Malaga has 35,000 inhabitants and a population density of 115 inhabitants / hectare. The problem of urban distribution in this area is the high demand of the food services sector and shops. In addition, being a very tourist area, the oscillation of demand is influenced by the increase in the floating population due to this sector.
On the other hand, the areas of Cruz de Humilladero, with 90,000 inhabitants and a population density of 200 inhabitants / ha, and Carretera de Cádiz, with 115,000 inhabitants and 180 inhabitants / ha, are characterized by a high demand for supply to traditional businesses and parcel delivery related to e-commerce.
Main goals of the study
The main objectives of this study are:
- The smart allocation and management of last mile distribution points for electronic commerce and urban logistics through interoperable charging points.
- The installation of solar panels for the supply of renewable energy (RES) to charging points.
- The use of the appropriate size of electric vehicles (EVs), that is, enough battery range to cover the distribution area.
- The environmental, social and economic impacts of last mile collaborative delivery with electric vehicles.
- Recommendations to allow ultra-low emissions.
This study has been divided into different sections: a) assessment, which includes demand analysis, supply analysis, and diagnosis: b) proposal for action; c)conclusion.
