The transport of goods in the city is a vital need in urban areas. However, the flows created have negative externalities on the quality of life of the population. First of all, the French consider noise as the first environmental nuisance disturbing them in their homes, in particular noise from road traffic. Transport is also partly responsible for the release of fine particles into the air. Finally, transport contributes to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Silent night deliveries are a serious alternative to reconciling city supplies, respect for local residents and ambient air quality. Indeed, a time delay to deliver overnight, when the road network is almost empty, avoids increasing congestion and pollution.
The Certibruit association has developed the "Night deliveries respectful of residents and the environment" label to enable distribution and catering professionals present in city centers to certify that their deliveries are respectful of residents.
Certibruit requires the use of clean and silent transport and handling equipment, the training of personnel and the layout of delivery sites. These rules are regularly checked and a telephone line is available to residents in the event of any complaint.
The Certibruit association therefore offers a model capable of guaranteeing economic performance and respect for public health and the environment.
This model is based on two strategies: a time delay to deliver at night, when the road network is almost empty, which avoids increasing congestion and pollution; and the use of large, silent trucks, which are less polluting than light commercial vehicles, given their large carrying capacity and modern motorization.
Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux and more than 12 major cities in France have already committed to this approach and are now granting exceptions to their delivery regulations for sites engaged in the Certibruit label.
