Urban logistics is a topic of increasing interest to both research and practice. Reasons for this are diverse: Population growth in urban areas is expected to continue, meaning that by 2030, 79% of the German population will live in these areas. This, in turn, has an impact on the already growing e-commerce which is a major driver for parcel delivery. As a result, parcel volume is expected to reach 5 billion pieces per year by 2026, equaling a growth of 100% since 2016. With a growing volume, not only the complexity of routes and business scalability increases, but also environmental problems, which are already the focus of various stakeholders anyway. Thus, logistics companies are required to develop innovative solutions, such as those derived from the possibilities of digitalization, in order to meet the increasing and changing demands of stakeholders.
