Urban Delivery Systems

Logistics, courier, laundry, cleaning, home delivery, tradespeople and customer service providers: such companies are rapidly increasing their presence in densely populated areas and their growth is driven by new customer requirements and advancing digital networking around the world. These employees are also increasingly taking the lead in both the B2B and B2C segment of their respective fields and the vehicles they utilize have become an integral part of the urban landscape.
