Urban Goods Distribution



The objective of the places regulated as Urban Goods Distribution (DUM) is to provide service, on weekdays of 8-20h, to all vehicles that need to distribute goods very close to the destination point for a limited time of 30 minutes. The fixation of this time lapse has the objective of giving maximum rotation to these places and that can serve the maximum possible number of trucks and vans that perform these operations every day. 

In the spaces for Urban Goods Distribution (DUM) can park trucks, vans and mixed vehicles of two squares, as indicated by the signage. Telematic validation is mandatory through the areaDUM application or sending an SMS and the maximum parking time is 30 minutes.

In the specific case of vehicles classified as Zero Emissions by DGT and authorized for parking in spaces designated for loading and unloading (areaDUM), the maximum parking time will be 30 minutes in addition to what determines the vertical signage corresponding to that specific space.
