  • "Routing"
    The planning and modeling process of allocating trips by different modes and to different origins and destination and routes.
Start Date: January 2020
Funding: Urban Freight Lab
Project Budget: $200,000
Principal Investigator(s): Dr. Anne Goodchild
The Urban Freight Lab's Common Microhub project provides an opportunity for members to test and evaluate urban logistics strategies on the ground in Seattle's Uptown neighborhood. As third-party logistics companies enter the last-mile space and more cities commit to environmental focus and zero emission vision, the interest around creating logistics places in urban proximity is growing. The outcomes of this research can guide the development of future microhub implementations in other cities.
Start Date: April 2019
Funding: UW Medicine Department of Laboratory Medicine
Principal Investigator(s): Dr. Anne Goodchild
The Urban Freight Lab primarily focused on optimizing UW Department of Laboratory Medicine's 12 routes per day, moving lab specimens and conducting departmental business. The work will optimize the minimize both the expected lead time (from the time the specimens are ready for pick up to the time they are delivered to the lab for testing) and the extent to which couriers work outside of their maximum shift durations.
