Urbanization, the rise of e-commerce and the discussion to reduce air pollution in German cities put transportation in the spotlight of public debate. Logistics companies and vehicle manufacturers started developing new concepts for the distribution of goods utilizing emission free vehicles. Often those concepts are centered around an additional turnaround of goods within the city borders. As a result, the delivery process heavily differs from that of conventional goods distribution. Therefore, city planners and logistics companies need profound data to identify suitable areas for micro hubs, electric chargers or the optimization of delivery routes. This paper describes how data from different sources can be used to develop new tools for decision making to reorganize the last mile.
