A study into out-of-hours deliveries has recently been launched to assess the impact of trade deliveries at night and when stores are closed. For businesses, out-of-hours deliveries can mean less interference or disruption to trading conditions while making the most of improved access during the quieter period as well as helping to relieve traffic congestion, improving safety and making operations more efficient.
The research, which is being conducted by the Central London Freight Quality Partnership, is being carried out in a number of boroughs across London, taking in the views of a variety of stakeholders including businesses, authorities and interest groups. The aim is to come up with a new initiative for freight in Central London and to potentially increase out-of-hour deliveries.
As well as contributing your views, there is also the opportunity to participate in trials to try out potential schemes such as silent roll cages etc.
