City Hub Groningen & e-cargo bikes deliveries
The transition to more efficient and cleaner city logistics requires a new policy framework. We see a future ahead of us with fewer and cleaner vehicles that better suit the size and scale of our narrow Streets - such as small electric freight vehicles and cargo bikes. In 2020 Groningen presents its strategy for urban freight in the city centre, announcing the contours of the expansion of the window time area and the ZE zone for city logistics that will come into effect in 2025. The vision also includes flanking measures to ensure that the window time area and the Zero Emission (ZE) zone actually make a contribution to improving the quality of life in the city centre. Groningen's new policy includes a set of different measures and regulations to facilitate and stimulate alternative 'clean' logistics services, such as delivery via hubs.
