Full-equipped electric trailer to boost the implementation of efficient, eco-friendly and resilient last-mile delivery

Project description

An innovative cycle logistics model for home delivery

The boom of the last mile delivery sector sets a series of new challenges, such as higher pollution levels, road congestion and safety. The growing need for e-commerce home delivery services together with the increasing number of cities banning motor vehicles in their centres impose a new urban logistics model. The bicycle seems an ideal solution for a sustainable shift provided that current stability and safety issues are addressed. The EU-funded FUTrailer project will introduce an intelligent riding system that ensures perfect synchronisation between the trailer and the bicycle. FUTrailer’s safe and versatile solution aspires to contribute to a smooth implementation of cycle logistics in the last mile delivery in European cities.
