Presentation: Last Mile Logistics in the Square Mile
This presentation will provide a review of the number of freight movements in the City, their proportion of traffic, why we need to mitigate them to achieve vision zero and an overview on consolidation, retiming and the river.
The bulk of the presentation would be on last mile logistics hubs which support the uptake of deliveries by cargo cycles, ensuring cleaner, greener City logistics.
