The Urban Freight Lab is a structured work group comprised of interconnected players in transportation and logistics — retailers, technology providers, manufacturers, real estate, shippers, and public agencies.
We are a living laboratory comprised of academic researchers, private sector members (retailers, truck freight carriers and parcel companies, technology companies supporting transportation and logistics, multifamily residential and retail/commercial building developers and operators) and public sector partners (City of Seattle Department of Transportation, Bellevue Transportation Department, and New York City Department of Transportation). Together we take part in innovative applied research projects and pilot tests to improve the operations of urban goods delivery systems and help identify priority problems for future research.
By engaging stakeholders who are decision-makers and influencers in urban freight operations and outcomes, we are able to understand urban freight challenges efficiently and holistically.
