Carbon free zone for transportation of goods in San José
San José has set an objective of becoming a climate-neutral city by the year 2030. Today, the two largest emissions are from transportation at 50 percent and buildings at 30 percent. To reach the goals, the city has set up 9 different work streams. One of these is "emission-free transportation of goods through the city".
Through a Swedish consortium of companies all within emission-free transportation, the project intends to show how the city of San José can practically realize its objective.
Concretely, the project develops a collaboration between Cake, Volta and the City of San José as well as delivery companies such as Amazon Delivery, UPS, DHL. Within the designated zone (Santee neighborhood) from San Jose, only emission-free means of transport will be allowed to deliver goods.
Cake will drive last-mile delivery with its motorcycles equipped with trailers. A third party will be contracted for the evaluation of how the activities contribute to lowering greenhouse gases and increasing green miles.
