Daxi District in Taoyuan City is located 50 minutes by car from Taoyuan International airport. With more than one hundred years of history, the prevalence of water transport by the Tamsui River led to commercial prosperity. Daxi Old Street is located next to the river docks, with many shops and businesses clustered on the current Heping Road in the old main street. It retains the appearance of the shopfronts of the historic pagoda buildings, making it one of the most famous sightseeing spots for visitors.
In 2019, the EcoLogistics Community included the Daxi district as one of six demonstration areas. By early 2020, the Taoyuan city government team engaged with different stakeholders by performing a questionnaire survey of business owners and households. They worked with local district offices and logistics operators to map the area’s logistics hotspots.
In the video below, you can follow the stakeholders and areas involved.
