As users catch up with new warehouse and distribution typologies, e-tailing giants and grocers are again reinventing land uses, building types, and new delivery vehicle formats in the quest to move closer to customers. This session demystifies how e-commerce has disrupted the traditional supply chain for retail and groceries, including the micrologistics that are affecting land use planning and architecture as well as impacting economics and real estate.

  • Understand the parameters for public agencies policy and design to support the final 50 feet of delivery logistics.
  • Identify the potential changes to traffic and the public right-of-way as a result of the new micrologistics model.
