Fludis


FLUDIS is a solution for carbon-free urban parcel delivery and collection, based on fluvial logistic platform equipped with cargobikes.

Loss of productivity for parcel deliveries, air and noise pollution arise through in the saturation of road networks during rush hours by fossil energy powered vehicles. FLUDIS uses rivers to convey, dispatch and retrieve its cargo from/to its fluvial logistic platform serviced by light electric vehicles. By bringing the platform and its vehicles closer to recipients we reduce the problems of congestion in large conurbations, therefore addressing logistic real estate challenges and increasing productivity and quality of service. The use of waterways coupled with a distribution model based on the frequency of circuits of small distribution vehicles (called "milk run" in the supply chain) allows us to offset the problem of remoteness of the messaging warehouses (additional distance of 15 km in 15 years from the heart of Paris, for example) and to move around much more easily.
