Title New York City, Florida to Pilot Overnight Truck Deliveries
Date Posted 10/8/2015
Description In a new Department of Transportation (DOT) pilot program, New York City and Pensacola, Florida, will test delivery and pickup of goods during off-peak hours, such as nighttime, to help relieve congestion on city streets. According to DOT's "Beyond Traffic" draft report, the amount of freight moving across America will grow 45 percent by 2040. The nation will have to tackle this problem through innovations like off-peak delivery and with the help of grants totaling $200,000; these two pilot cities will help test this idea.
