CLIC is convinced that there are already a great many separate ideas and concepts about future-proof urban logistics floating around, and that many individuals already have a piece of the puzzle. In addition, there is an enormous potential hidden in the market, in the hands of well-known players as well as unknown talents. What the sector now needs is an incubator, a place where cross-pollination can take place between sectors, educational institutions, and the business community.
Concentrating all the talents in one place and making the best possible facilities available can only serve to bring urban logistics a step further and, by doing so, also improve the quality of life in the city. Are you part of an organisation that is looking to develop innovative urban logistics solutions? CLIC is interested in finding out what kinds of facilities or services you would like to have available on campus. What will the hubs of the future look like? What kinds of electrical charging options would you like? Perhaps you have a brilliant idea or suggestion that can make the difference. Then tell CLIC about it at: email@example.com. We look forward to discussing the possibilities with you.
"Online groceries are increasingly being delivered to the end consumer, often on a weekly basis. Consumers prefer fresh locally produced products. We often still need to find effective solutions for the first mile. What is the best way to move products from farmers and producers to a hub? Such products could benefit greatly from a shared hub. CLIC could perhaps provide a solution for the last-mile neighbourhood deliveries as well."
Catering sector wholesalers
"The number of platforms available for deliveries to cafés, restaurants and hotels is steadily increasing. By offering a special assortment, such businesses can set themselves apart from the competition. Orders can be placed in a centralised fashion, and the platforms are also expected to take centralised deliveries. The supplier simply makes deliveries to Lijndenhof from where goods can be clustered and sent to the client emission-free with flexible electrical vehicles."
Commercial deliveries to office neighbourhoods
"Offices located in Schiphol Airport, the “Zuidas”, Haarlemmermeer and Amsterdam-West would benefit from a hub that would allow them to get everything they need delivered at one go instead of having to deal with dozens of deliveries on a daily basis."
"Companies developing heat pump technology for existing homes are booming now that the region will soon no longer have access to natural gas. CLIC will have office space available where you can meet and collaborate with various corporations and major home property owners. You can coordinate flows of goods on site and prepare everything for the service engineer or technician, for example by stocking vans at night. You can also work together with the technical training sector or a commercial company."
‘Caterers are frequently in search of a central facility for cooking. CLIC has enough space available for such a facility. The caterer would then be connected to local producers who deliver the necessary goods, and would also benefit from a zero-emission network that connects them to the customer.’
Are you involved in an innovative project that will bring the urban logistics of the future a step closer? A project perhaps in which you have a piece of the puzzle but are looking for other parties to provide the missing pieces? A project that requires the hub to be structured in a specific manner or requires special facilities? We will be happy to think things through with you. So why not contact us? Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
