Hamburg model project for sustainable urban logistics awarded by the German Society for Sustainability DQS
The Sustainable City Logistics project was developed by UPS in cooperation with the city of Hamburg, Germany as a way to reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions in the city center. The project involves placing four containers at locations around the city then using hand trucks and electric cargo bikes to deliver packages from the containers. The 13 UPSers working to deliver packages from the containers leads to 800 kilometers a day of delivery routes and zero emissions. The German Society for Sustainability DQS awarded UPS with a German Excellence Award in the category of Environmental Responsibility for the Sustainable City Logistics project.
