SURFLOGH solutions for street renovation impacts
Onze Lieve Vrouwestraat is being renovated
In a nutshell, all street occupiers are advised to change their delivery address to that of the CityDepot hub in Mechelen-Noord. At the hub, orders are consolidated and consequently delivered to the door at set times using cargo-bikes or small electric vehicles. Customers can also opt to do their own pick from the depot. The hub also collects goods – creating a two-way freight flow. To facilitate the couriers and speed up the process, Mechelen has provided the hub with an exclusive parking space close to their yard.
Plans are now in place and as the street renovation works are set to start, our Flemish partners are preparing to initiate this next trial. They are communicating personally and through various media channels – including a webinar - with the affected stakeholders, retailers and delivery services regarding the temporary changes. The SURFLOGH consortium is eager to discover how much this sustainable logistics service, provided with our project's support, can alleviate the inconvenience and impact on business.
