TfL launches directory of construction consolidation centres in capital

TfL has published a directory of construction consolidation centres in London in a move to encourage the reduction of individual vehicle movements travelling to and from building sites.

It is expected that increased use of consolidation sectors will improve the safety, efficiency and planning of deliveries by combining and co-ordinating ‘just-in time’ deliveries.

TfL said it is working closely with the construction logistics industry to improve the collaboration and sustainability of deliveries.

Ian Wainwright, head of freight and fleet at TfL, said: “There is no one answer to improving the efficiency of freight on our roads but the Directory of London Construction Consolidation Centres is a valuable addition to the toolkit.”

He added: “We are working hard to ensure that London’s roads support its growth and a key part of that is making sure that they are used efficiently. The use of consolidation centres can benefit operators, clients and all other road users, and our directory will make it easier than ever to find the right centre for the right job.”
