With the growth of city living, the pressure on our streets and air quality from increased delivery traffic is clear. Clean and green solutions to last mile logistics for e-commerce can help our cities breath again, but solutions need to be safe and secure.

Connected Places Catapult are hosting an Innovation Bootcamp day on the 2nd November in Manchester, investigating sustainable and scalable approaches to last-mile-logistics. The day will explore commercial and technological challenges with corporate customers, industry stakeholders and innovative entrepreneurs, identifying opportunities for novel, digital solutions.

You will hear from highly innovative start-ups as they pitch their solutions and network with potential collaborators and customers to understand how to support the e-commerce supply chain.
