Samenvatting

Characteristics of Next-generation E-commerce Urban WarehousesThe aim of this study is to identify the characteristics of next-generation urban warehousesrelated to the e-commerce supply chain. Logistic activities related to the delivery of onlineorders increasingly affect viability in urban environments and challenges are numerous for the e-commerce supply chain to effectively perform logistics processes.Data for this research were obtained from literature research and interviews with national and international experts on supply chain management, e-commerce, and authorities.On the basis of the results of this research, it can be concluded that an unambiguous set offeatures does not exist and that it is highly dependent on the e-commerce provider 's strategic focus. When focusing on fast delivery, storage in the city center is a prerequisite as existing infrastructure does not adapt to the wishes of a logistic provider. Specific real estate that is difficult to redevelop and eventually seems to lose its function, such as underground parking garages, are eligible as next-generation warehouses. Of which properties as a height of 2.5 to 3.5 height and surfaces between 1000 and 2000 square meters are the main features. Parts of retail stores and department stores may also be suitable. It is recommended that further research be undertaken in the following areas: A consumer inquiry about the willingness to pay for an additional fee for such fast deliveries, the role of project developers and investors, and the relationship between urban infrastructure and urban delivery.
