A Collaborative Solution to Urban Last Mile Challenge?

According to the report ‘Making urban freight logistics more sustainable’, freight traffic accounts for 10-15% of urban kilometres travelled. Which doesn’t sound excessive until you realise that it represents 300-400 freight vehicle trips, per 100 people per day in, out, through or within a city. Many of these spend much of their time blocking roads to unload perhaps just one or two roll cages.

Whitepaper: How Do We Achieve A Sustainable Future for Freight Transport?

The problem is simply stated. The European Commission reports that while road freight represents just 3% of vehicles, they account for 29% of road derived emissions. Consisting of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, but also pollutants such as oxides of nitrogen and particulates. Exhaust emissions aren’t the only issues either.  Fuel spills, tyre ‘crumb’, accidents, noise & vibration, congestion, infrastructure degradation… It all has a real impact on the health and well-being of people and the environment. Whether at local, regional or higher level it still says nothing of future ‘climate change’. Download our latest whitepaper, to learn what you can do today to start improving your sustainability profile.

The Value of Modern Investment

Unlike a traditional ICO or Initial Coin Offering however, the IVO comes in two distinct parts. Firstly, investors will receive a voucher assigned to services offered by a business within the consortium. Secondly, crypto asset tokens (i.e. a non-FIAT currency) of equivalent value to their investment will be issued against the vouchers which can then be traded within the confines of the proprietary market.
