Transport for London

TfL_Mark_ThirdParty_CMYKTransport for London (TfL) are responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Capital’s public transport network, managing London’s main roads and planning and building new infrastructure.

London’s population is growing and is forecast to reach 10 million by 2031. This will mean higher demand for goods and services. Freight deliveries are vital to London’s sustained economic growth and around 90 per cent of all freight moves by road in London. Our team within TfL works to ensure the logistics industry can sustainably serve London’s growing economy and population with the right vehicles, delivering in a safe, clean and efficient way, driven by the safest drivers.

We have a series of programmes that can help reduce congestion, improve air quality and road safety, and create better trading environments.

On current trends, London’s population will reach 10 million by 2030.

Noise Abatement Society

NAS_identity_CMYKEstablished in 1959, the Noise Abatement Society (NAS) is the only UK national charitable foundation NGO whose sole focus is to abate excessive and unnecessary noise to protect the public and improve the aural environment.

The historic polarisation of stakeholders in relation to re-timed deliveries has understandably been a great barrier to progressing HGV movements at sensitive hours for the delivery of goods and services, the complexity of which is not always apparent to the general public.

However, the NAS has always taken a pragmatic view – not just raising awareness of the effects of noise, but encouraging ways to solve noise problems in practical and sustainable ways – its initiative Silent Approach™ introduced in 2007 was used as the basis for trials across the UK by the Department for Transport in a consortium with the NAS, the Freight Transport Association, TTR and TRL called the Quiet Delivery Demonstration Scheme which has informed Transport for London’s ‘anytime delivery’ programme.

NAS is at the heart of this work currently being carried out in London. The results of the programme will be viewed by cities all over the world as examples of successful sustainable logistics
