Light goods vehicles are an important part of London traffic. With changes to delivery demand and traffic patterns more broadly, they often have a disproportionate impact on the functioning of cities. We partnered with industrial organizations specializing in last-mile parcel delivery, thereby gaining access to data which allowed us to construct an agent-based model of the last-mile delivery process. In this work, we expand upon the existing model to incorporate parking behavior, an important factor of delivery driving which is often overlooked in the literature. The tool we present can be used to explore different policy and infrastructure interventions.

Abstract

Light goods vehicles are an important part of London traffic. With changes to delivery demand and traffic patterns more broadly, they often have a disproportionate impact on the functioning of cities. We partnered with industrial organizations specializing in last-mile parcel delivery, thereby gaining access to data which allowed us to construct an agent-based model of the last-mile delivery process. In this work, we expand upon the existing model to incorporate parking behavior, an important factor of delivery driving which is often overlooked in the literature. The tool we present can be used to explore different policy and infrastructure interventions.
