London CRP has launched the Urban Logistics Hub Map

CRP has launched the Urban Logistics Hub Map, an online tool showcasing sites that could be potentially used for urban logistics. This tool has been developed from the 2020 study commissioned by the Central London Sub Regional Transport Partnership, which investigated the requirements that a logistics operator would need for a micro hub and the availability of underutilized space across central London.

CRP hopes that this tool will help create a more efficient, more sustainable environment for operators and local communities to experience less congestion and better air quality in central London.

Note “Feeder” tests, not final design see: “VGF Flex Cargo Tram – Frankfurt” , Orion High Speed Logistics, UK, “Tram parcel deliveries begin in Schwerin.” others…….
