Urban freight delivery and city logistics

Commercial vehicle movements are necessary to enable goods to be delivered and services to be provided. However, these movements are not without negative impact in terms of emissions, noise and traffic (due to frequent stop-starts, use of unsuitable roads, inappropriate deliveries).

To reduce the impact of freight movement, local authorities are engaging actively with logistic companies and local businesses in order to come up with strategies for goods delivery. This has led to a wide range of initiatives, including regulated delivery times, consolidation centres, improved load factors, parking bays for deliveries.
