Rethinking last-mile logistics, post-COVID-19: Facing the ‘next normal’

E-commerce has grown significantly in the past decade, as new digital business models and smarter logistics concepts enable both instant and same-day deliveries (respectively growing 36% and 17% a year). Rising last mile demand could boost the number of delivery vehicles in the top 100 cities globally 36% through 2030.

The sustainability scenario includes EVs, night deliveries, deliveries at marginal times, explicit parking areas for delivery vehicles, as well as stronger enforcement mechanisms regarding second-lane parking and overall traffic.

Trends in the economic scenario include the need to find new ways to consolidate deliveries, assuming volumes remain higher in the next normal.

The ecosystem scenario can help private and public players. Increased EV penetration will occur due to regulation and reduced battery costs, producing a positive total cost of usage (TCU).

All last-mile ecosystem players are under tremendous pressure to act but could also benefit from the changes ahead.
