Link urban logistics is my Master thesis project from the Mobility Design Masters at the Product Design department Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee 2013.
One of the challenges we’re facing in the 21st century is urban mobility, especially the distribution of goods in cities. Today’s logistics consist of too many trucks that drive around unorganised or even fully loaded and have grave impacts on the city and the environment. Link is a new urban logistics system. A seamless, synchronised system that makes use of existing infrastructure such as the resources of public transportation: buses, trams, stations, depots etc. Link consists of semi autonomous cargo vehicles that supply a network of neighbourhood storage spaces by following buses and trams from consolidation centres to their destinations.
