Chronopost. The UDC is located close to final customers, and is
supplied from a major hub located south of Paris. The UDC
operation is intended to reduce delivery distances (as longer stem
distances are removed from delivery operations, air pollution and
(the expected reduction in CO
is approximately 80%), while

Customers benefit from improved quality of service, reduced

In the UDC, which started operation in 2013, parcels are
received from the Chronopost hub located 20 km south of
Paris. These parcels are unloaded by means of a conveyor
belt, sorted and then loaded onto electric vans for final
delivery to customers.
Paris is a congested city and the main objective that led to
the introduction of this UDC was the reduction of vehicle
kilometres in the city. Prior to the introduction of the UDC,
the parcels were delivered directly to customers using
diesel vans and trucks from the major hub to the south of
Paris, resulting in many long, unproductive journeys to and
from central Paris.
The UDC has two floors, and parcels are unloaded on
both levels by means of a conveyor belt. Parcels are sorted
and then loaded onto electric vans for 30 delivery rounds,
which operate each weekday.
The vehicles used for deliveries are full electric vans below
