The basic thinking behind the work at Lindholmen is to coordinate as many transports as possible and to develop logistics solutions which can be used by as many different operators as possible. The next step is to attempt to find service providers who want to participate and contribute to development of the idea.
Work with smart transport solutions at Campus Lindholmen reduced heavy transport in the area by nearly 80 per cent. Now the system will be developed and expanded and new services will be connected. A finished solution will be available in one year.
When the Lindholm Delivery was introduced in 2008, the simple idea was that the same electrical mini-truck would deliver goods to the area and waste as it exited. Instead of one lorry for every cargo transport, all deliveries were consolidated and delivered with electric vehicles during times with reduced traffic. In this manner, the amount of heavy vehicle trips on Campus Lindholmen was reduced from 85 to 10 per week, which reduced travel in the area by 2480 km.
'In a year, we want to have a similar solution that we can use on a larger scale, but we want to develop the model and also incorporate other services and develop a long-term, sustainable business model,' says Louise Larsson, Project Manager at Älvstranden Utveckling.
