Freight in the City Spring Summit attracts strong interest in sustainable urban deliveries

More than 350 visitors attended the Freight in the City Spring Summit this week to explore innovative ways of handling urban freight movements.

Starting the event with a powerful keynote speech was Labour MP Rob Flello, a keen supporter of the freight industry, who urged operators to approach government swiftly and collectively to address freight policy ahead of full Brexit negotiations.

Speakers representing some of the UK’s major cities, alongside academics and leading freight and logistics companies then took the stage to highlight best practice in making city deliveries cleaner, safer and quieter.

Themes explored on the day included the UK needing to take the lead in urban logistics innovation, data advancements to drive efficiency, and great examples of best practice taking place across Europe.
