Urban Delivery System - the final 50 feet

Peer networking lunch September 21

Demand for home delivery is growing.

Amazon sales alone reached nearly $38 billion in revenues in the second quarter of 2017, up nearly $8 billion over the same time period of 2016. 

As online shopping continues to grow, cities are adjusting to the shift towards home delivery of goods. 

This peer networking session focuses on the final 50 feet of the urban delivery system: the city-owned curb, commercial vehicle load zone, or sidewalk.

The last 50 feet provide challenges to goods delivery because there is such high demand for scarce road, curb, and sidewalk space in urban areas with multiple competing uses.

Please join us for a discussion of data driven tools to optimize the final 50 feet of deliveries of business and consumer goods and how this data is informing decisions to revise codes and regulations and to make near- and long-term planning decisions regarding the management of scarce and expensive space in final 50 feet locations.

September 21 from 12:00-1:30 at PSRC, 1011 Western Avenue, Suite 500, Seattle, 98104

Speakers: Barbara Ivanov, Haena Kim, Jose Machado, Gaby Giron, UW Urban Freight Lab; Jude Wilcher, City of Seattle; Chris Eaves, City of Seattle
