Evaluation of Oslo City Hub: the Planning and Establishment of a Depot for Transshipment of Goods

Evaluering av Oslo City Hub: Planlegging og etablering av et bylogistikkdepot for gods

The aim of this project has been to evaluate the process of establishing a depot for transshipment of goods for last-mile distribution in downtown Oslo. In the evaluation, emphasis is placed on key events in the planning process and collaboration between the various actors and stakeholders who have been involved in the project. The goal of the evaluation is to provide a knowledge base for other private actors, cities or municipalities who wish to establish something similar. The results indicate that there are five criteria for a successful establishment; trust between the collaborators, expert knowledge and a dedicated driving force in the planning and design process, support from and good cooperation with the public sector, suitable and available location for the depot in the city center and simple and flexible design of the depot.
