2.3.1 Case study introduction

Course subject(s) Module 2. System approach to understand city logistics

Now let’s have a look at a real case. This will illustrate how the activities within the systems approach to urban distribution can used to improve deliveries to the Emporium, a major retail facility in Melbourne’s central business district.

A video animation by Bestrane Australia will be used to highlight some of the general issues associated with making deliveries into major activity and retail hubs in cities. You can find it under Video Demo on the Bestrane MobileDock webpage or go directly to the YouTube video Dock Appointment Scheduler Demonstration.
