Smart loading zones in the Principality

As part of the Prince’s Government’s mobility strategy and the “Extended Monaco” digital transformation programme, the Ministry of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development and the Interministerial Delegation for Digital Transition have introduced smart loading zones, identifiable by the initials “PAM” (“Goods Reception Point”). The aim is to facilitate urban logistics and goods distribution across Monaco.

In particular, the scheme is designed to optimise last-mile delivery logistics by making life easier for drivers, who can now park up more quickly, reduce their CO2 emissions, and shorten their parking times by stopping closer to their destination.

Nine strategic areas of the Principality have been prioritised with three local stakeholders: La Poste, Monaco Logistique, and Monaco City Hall’s Office for the Elderly and Social Support. These loading zones are identified by road surface markings, to prevent their unlawful use by unauthorised persons. Between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., they will be strictly reserved for use by businesses and services participating in this scheme.

The zones themselves, with capacity for up to two light commercial vehicles or one truck with a tailgate, are equipped with sensors which, connected to the dedicated website livrici.gouv.mc – optimised for mobile use -, allow delivery drivers to see exactly how much space is available in real-time.

How does it work?

Once connected to the site, simply search for an available loading zone using a map of the Principality, a list of zones monitored and search and filter options. All information (location, times, real-time availability) and functions (route, declaration of parking and incidents) are also available.

The scheme, which will be expanded to cover other districts of the Principality by the end of 2022, is part of moves to create a Goods Reception Point (“PAM”) in the Western City Entrance Operation.

For Céline Caron-Dagioni, Minister of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development, “Faced with the growth of e-commerce in our modern societies, we need to think right to the last mile in our territory. Digital technology gives us the means to organise traffic in the Principality, in real-time and for the benefit of residents. That is why we are launching this first, full-scale test with users, under the acronym “PAM ”.

In our world, where the ecological and digital transitions are crucial, Livrici is another step towards optimised and sustainable urban logistics. Digitally organised and regulated deliveries will help to support economic growth without affecting mobility. The solution will contribute to the objectives in terms of quality of life in the Principality driven by the Smart City,” said Frédéric Genta, Country Chief Digital Officer.
