The online store is growing from year to year, and the end is not visible. At the same time, consumers' expectations of logistics services are growing, as deliveries must be fast and effortless, whether they are transported to a pick-up point or to your door. In addition, consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious, and thus sustainability is to be taken into consideration. How do logistics service companies respond to this and what is the future of urban logistics?
