The image of a city should be filled with people and not cars along with buildings and tree cover in the background. Urban interventions are aimed to prioritize walking and cycling and move away from private vehicle oriented planning. In previous years, many cities around the globe are converting streets for walking and cycling resulting in a reduction of traffic congestion, air pollution, and traffic accidents. Walking and cycling are the healthiest ways to get around our cities, providing valuable physical activity for people on a daily basis.
Cities generate an estimated 75% of all global CO2 emissions and urban freight contributes up to 40% of these emissions. The industry’s environmental impact is only set to increase further as global freight demand is estimated to triple between 2015 and 2050.
Could traditional last-mile logistics finally be undergoing a much needed transformation? The way goods and services arrive at the people’s doors has never been more important. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic began, e-commerce was on the rise and so were demands for greater levels of service and convenience from consumers. However, such demands come at a cost.
In the Daxi Commercial District of Taoyuan, the challenges of urban freight are clearly on display. The historic old town, Daxi’s narrow streets, unique architectural style and exquisite wooden features make it a charming and popular neighborhood for locals and tourists alike.
