Title: Hyperconnected City Logistics and AIMES
Abstract: There are enormous challenges associated with achieving net zero emissions from urban freight systems due to the growth in demand for smaller and more frequent deliveries. Hyperconnected City Logistics provides a framework for dramatically reducing emissions by transforming independent own account networks to increase vehicle consolidation levels and reduce distances travelled. This seminar will illustrate how shared multi-modal networks for improving vehicle consolidation levels in urban areas can be designed and evaluated using optimisation models. Examples are presented involving supplying goods to retails stores, distribution of parcels into CBDs and general freight between major freight areas in metropolitan regions to illustrate the potential of more collaborative and integrated freight networks.
An overview of the Australian Integrated Multimodal EcoSystem (AIMES) will also be provided. AIMES is a world-first living laboratory based on the streets of Melbourne, established to test highly integrated transport technology with a goal to deliver safer, cleaner and more sustainable urban transport outcomes. A description of how partnerships with government and industry have enabled collaborative trials of advanced technologies to integrate the movement of all road users (people and vehicles) with transport infrastructure will be described.
