As the global population booms and cities grow more congested, making quick deliveries gets harder for UPS. The logistics giant’s solution? Data analysis to reduce drivers’ mileage on the road and the replacemen­t of trucks with Tuk Tuk-like bikes that have already debuted in Dublin and Hamburg. These ideas “started with city officials in Europe choosing to impose access restrictio­ns because of air quality,” says Peter Harris, UPS’s internatio­nal sustainabi­lity director. But, he adds, these programs do far more for UPS: “The public connects with it—they see the benefits from getting vehicles off the road.”
