Last-Mile Logistics in Urban Areas

Tolga Bektas
University of Liverpool Management School
United Kingdom
 

Brief Bio
Tolga Bektas is Professor of Logistics Management and Director of Research for the Operations Management Subject Group at the University of Liverpool Management School.  He holds a PhD in Industrial Engineering (2005) from Bilkent University, postdoctoral research experience at the University of Montreal from 2005 to 2007, and held academic posts at the University of Southampton from 2007 to 2018 prior to joining the University of Liverpool.  His research interests are in the planning and optimisation of operations arising within freight logistics and distribution, including vehicle routing and scheduling, intermodal transportation and urban logistics, with a particular emphasis on reducing environmental externalities from transport.  He has been investigator in a number of externally funded projects on railway timetable optimisation, maintenance planning in sea vessels and last-mile distribution in cities.  He has published widely in international journals, presented keynotes at national and international conferences, and authored a book titled Freight Transport and Distribution printed by CRC Press.


Abstract
Freight transport makes up 16% of all road vehicle activity in UK cities, with lorries and vans performing 30% of their total activity in urban areas.  Around 2.4 billion parcels were sent in the UK in 2017-18, for example, giving rise to significant operational challenges in performing last-mile deliveries.  In this talk, I will present some of the findings of the research project titled FTC2050: Freight Traffic Control 2050 (http://www.ftc2050.com) that looked at the collective transport and energy impacts of current 'business-as-usual' carrier activities in London.  The aim was to improve carrier collection and delivery schedules by investigating the potential of new business models for reducing localised transport impacts.  I will describe the practical challenges faced by last-mile logistics operators, and present alternative distribution models in the way of improving the overall efficiency of the operations.
