EVA Nano Hub/The Next Generation Bus Stop
The EVA Nano Hub, is a self-supporting, logistics hub using the bus stop as the central point. Functions of pick up and drop off of humans and goods are combined and are enriched with a number of additional services. It is attractive for residents and travelers since they receive more regional services in one single, central, point. It offers all kind of relevant services executed by partners such as lockers for personal delivery of mail, medicines, internet goods, groceries, etc., bikes, electric bikes, and a car for the last mile.
The Hub, having all these combined services, will become a social meeting point in villages and country sides. The Hub will optimize the transport chain, by having all in one place. So no package delivery, grocery delivery etc will cross villages for hours and face the fact that people are not at home. This also means less use of logical hardware is required. New business models between partners also contribute to lower costs in the network. All this combined is very good for the environment, less congestion and particulate matter. All applications, as the OV Chipcard and smartphone, can be used to approach the lockers, bicycles and cars. All logistics are combined in one place, no necessity to wait at home for several deliveries on one day.
