  • Event Overview
    • Freight in the City

      Freight in the City is an essential event for anyone involved with delivering or receiving goods into city centres, or looking for more sustainable ways to handle urban servicing operations, such as refuse collection.

      Deputy London Mayor of Transport Val Shawcross will officially open this year’s Freight in the City Expo with a keynote speech about how freight fits in with London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s ambitious plans for improved air quality, less congestion and safer roads in the capital.

      Freight in the City features a seminar programme with speakers drawn from all areas of the industry. We have operators from the public and private sectors presenting case studies about their businesses. Policy makers and technology leaders will be looking at future developments in urban deliveries

      Seminar programme:

      1. London Eye: A look at some of the major projects underway in the capital, such as TfL’s LoCity and the West End Partnership Freight Programme
      2. Clean-up act: Air quality targets and encouraging uptake of ultra-low-emission vehicles
      3. Urban compliance: Safer trucks and compliance including a look at the latest research underway in TfL’s Safer Trucks Programme
      4. Retiming and quiet deliveries: Retiming activities across the UK and out-of-hours best practice

      A panel of industry experts will be on hand to conclude the programme and answer any questions you might have about the topics discussed throughout the day.
      In between all seminar sessions, plenty of time has built in for delegates to browse the exhibition of urban vehicles, equipment and services and to network with peers.
