The most significant impact of freight delivery in dense urban neighborhoods is what is known as “the last mile,” and is really often the last few hundred feet. This final step in the process where the package is placed in the recipients’ hands is often coupled with trucks double parking, drivers sorting on-street and vehicles blocking traffic. Bill 2253 of the New York City Council, if passed, would pilot micro-distribution hubs to facilitate the last mile and reduce the impact of this activity on the city.
