Short description

The project addresses an important part of the transport system with its focus on last mile deliveries in retail shopping. Representing a large share of the transports performed in society, it is an area where changes have great impact on the overall performance of the transport system. To contribute to the transition to a more sustainable transport system, a better understanding of these transports and their transition is required.
