Living for the city

What's better than a beautiful Spring day in sunny California? How about an entire Spring weekend in SoCal to celebrate some of the hardest-working athletes in the world.

Our Thoughts on the Future of Last-Mile Delivery

Cura Resource Group is in the business of helping companies distribute their goods in complex, hard-to-navigate, urban markets, so we’re well aware that last-mile logistics have never been more important than they are right now. With social distancing in full force due to COVID-19, people are depending on home deliveries for everything from food to pet supplies to paper goods (yes, even toilet paper.) We have never lived through such a significant disruption of “normal” shopping routines — even in years when our country was at war and supplies were scarce, people could still leave their homes to buy what they needed from local stores.

The World Economic Forum Says Demand for Urban Last-mile Delivery Will Increase by 78% in the Next Decade

In January 2020, the World Economic Forum (WEF) released a stunning report about the unintended consequences of excessive last-mile delivery in our largest cities.
