Besides the organisation of the workshop, the TURBLOG partners also performed 3 Technical Visits in Paris.

The first one took place at the Concorde Square, where the TURBLOG partners visited the Chronopost installations to know more about their Chronopost Concorde initiative. In 2005, Chronopost opened a new logistic platform in order to deliver goods in two "Arrondissements" of the city, using ecological transportation (electric vehicles and bicycles).

An explanatory video of the Chronopost Concorde initiative is available here.

 

 

The second Technical Visit took place in the city in order to understand better the concept behind La Petite Reine, a company specialized in the delivery of intra-urban final delivery of goods for third parties, which differenciate themselves by using by using an innovative ecological vehicle, the Cargocycle® (see picture below).

Finally, the third Technical Visit took the TURBLOG partners to Bercy, where they visited the installations of Samada, a subsidiary of the Monoprix group, responsible for the delivery of the goods sold by the group and logistics. 

Samara grabed the attention of the TURBLOG partners for its ecological logistics processes which combine rail transport with electric vehicles, to ensure the delivery of goods inside the city of Paris.
