Hyperconnected City Logistics aims to enable concurrent superior performance in terms of efficiency, sustainability, responsiveness, resilience, security, and fairness in fulfilling demands for physical objects throughout urban environments. It leverages massively open multi-party multi-modal asset sharing and flow consolidation through seamless interconnectivity within and between urban environments. This chapter reframes the conceptual framework for hyperconnected City Logistics into a set of fourteen core concepts. These core concepts are grouped into two categories: open logistic web and means and ways. The former identifies cluster, mobility networks, service, resource, stakeholder, cyberphysical, and governance networks, whereas the latter characterizes open sharing, flow consolidation, live monitoring, protocol-based execution, networked-response resource deployment, and capability-enablement planning.
