06-brussels Consolidating existing deliveries in Brussels to create a more sustainable urban distribution model

Many of these deliveries are made on demand which doesn’t allow time for distributors to consolidate loads. Undertaking a survey to understand current freight flows in Brussels, a number of consolidation scenarios will be mapped, and the most viable option will be trialled in a location owned by the Port of Brussels and results will be measured. If successful, the trial will be enlarged into a whole multi-centre structure for Brussels and a business case will be created to replicate the solution across Europe.


Bruxelles Mobilité published an Expression of Interest to find a subpartner to implement its trial consolidation centre, in the Port of Brussels.

They have started the preparation of the consolidation centre trial with their new subpartner, City Depot. The trial commenced in September. The official launch of the centre at the Port of Brussels took place on 10 October, and both press and local government attended.
