How E-commerce Affects Land Use — and How COVID-19 Affects E-Commerce
In this recent podcast from the American Planning Association, Planning magazine Editor-In-Chief, Meghan Stromberg talks with Lisa Nisenson, vice president for new mobility and connected communities at WGI, about what e-commerce trends mean for land use and contactless delivery.
They discuss delivery bots, drones, and other trends that will have a major impact on every community’s land and airspace. Meghan and Lisa also discuss the long-term e-commerce implications of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The rapid rise in e-commerce deliveries and online food and grocery orders is driving many cities to develop a range of strategies to control curbside congestion. E-commerce impacts, however, extend far beyond the curb.”
