Challenge Overview

The Toulouse metropolitan area is one of the six main French logistics areas. Logistics can be inefficient, however, with a strong impact on the territory in terms of urban congestion, occupation, and consumption of urban or suburban space, noise, greenhouse gas emissions and local pollutants. This function, which is essential to the region and generates jobs and economic activity, ensures its mission of service to residents and businesses, but generates negative externalities that require work to improve knowledge and optimize resources. A solution was sought to meet at least one of the following objectives: 

  • Develop inverse logistics solutions
  • Valorise the wastes
  • Optimise the last-mile delive logistics
  • Optimise the waste trucks logistics
  • Adaptable solutions for garbage collections
