Feasibility Study on Sustainable Logistics Models of Food Distribution
A study commissioned as a cooperation project between Ceredigion (Lead), Carmarthen and Pembrokeshire to investigate sustainable logistic models of food distribution in the three counties. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a rising demand for local/regional food distribution, with many businesses selling direct to customers. This trend borne out of need and accessibility, is calling attention to alternative models that support a set of social, economic and environmental values. The project will set up focus groups, analyse the current position, investigate a potential delivery model and produce a final written report https://www.arwainsirbenfro.cymru/media/4jqdp42a/feasibility-study-on-sustainable-logistic-models-of-food-distribution-final-report-v3-0.pdf
