Ted Smalley Bowen in Metropolis Magazine reports on how an EU pilot project has implemented of “e-Commerce Enabled Demand Responsive Urban Logistics” (eDRUL) to manage freight delivery traffic within urban cores. IT has monumentally improved the efficiencies possible in the logistics business, given proper coordination and staging, making this a ripe market. Just imagine if such a system could have been applied by the old Chicago Tunnel Company.
