TRANSCAPILLARY: URBAN LOGISTICS AND CAPILLARY DISTRIBUTION: NEW EFFICIENT AND SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS

A disruptive change is proposed in the current system of urban goods distribution and in the vehicles that are currently used to carry out this task. To achieve this, and in alignment with the government's strategy in the area of Sustainable Development, reflected in the Strategic Plan for Infrastructure and Transport, it promotes the creation of a new model of vehicle linked to a solution that profoundly redefines the management of urban logistics.

The main purpose of this proposal is simply to study the technical and economic viability of the creation and implementation of the new logistics model for urban distribution. The model will incorporate a series of changes in this management, and so the study must provide objective data about the repercussions of municipal actions aimed at increasing the promotion of sustainable urban development, so as to provide support when making often controversial decisions. The challenge set is to assess the value added by a model capable of simulating and predicting the effects of urban and logistical actions, which will have important architectural, social, psycho-social, economic and political repercussions.
