TfL working with freight industry to retime deliveries

Highways Reporters

Transport for London (TfL) is working in partnership with the freight industry to change how deliveries are made and keep the capital’s roads flowing.

With its £4 billion road modernisation programme now underway TfL is focusing on retiming deliveries to outside the peak hours of 07:00-13:00. Doing so means that vital deliveries can be made with fewer wasted driver hours and fuel, reducing costs, lowering emissions and improving customer service.

TfL's road modernisation programme is creating a greener, safer and more attractive network for all users, including new segregated Cycle Superhighways meaning dramatically changed road layouts. As new areas of London are developed, such as Battersea Power Station and Old Oak Common, there will be further significant change.

London’s population is set to grow from 8.6 million people today to more than 10 million by 2030. This means careful planning is needed for the safe and efficient movement of increasing volumes of goods around the capital.

London's Transport Commissioner, Sir Peter Hendy CBE, said: “From the shops on our high streets to the offices in the City, we all rely on freight and logistics to keep London thriving. The unprecedented growth and changing nature of London is placing increasing pressure on our road network. Never has the need to adapt been more pressing. We must build on all the work we did together during the London 2012 Games to make further progress on retiming outside the busiest times, rerouting and consolidating deliveries. This will mean less congestion, improved road safety and reduced costs for the industry and businesses.”

TfL is drawing up a long-term strategic approach to managing freight in London as a response to the Mayor’s Roads Task Force by engaging with the servicing and delivery industry, businesses and London’s boroughs.
