The future of deliveries is electric and robotic, the Fraunhofer IML finds in its study called Logistics on the Last Mile. Particularly in urban centres, deliveries will accelerate, be electric and may use the quiet night hours. Rural areas however will have to wait a little longer and also stick with the ICE for a bit.

Electric bus success: Two electric buses prove their worth for London operator GoAhead. After testing the vehicles from Irizar for 18 months, the i2e electric buses will be incorporated into the fleet and serve on line 108 in East London. Spanish Irizar is to provide service and maintenance.
