Abstract

Barcelona has recently started a new strategy to control and understand Last Mile Delivery, AreaDUM. The strategy is to provide freight delivery vehicle drivers with a mobile app that has to be used every time their vehicle is parked in one of the designated AreaDUM surface parking spaces in the streets of the city. This provides a significant amount of data about the activity of the freight delivery vehicles, their patterns, the occupancy of the spaces, etc.
