Green freight and delivery

Our BIDs have been active and successful in reducing the number of freight trips on our roads and through our communities. We want to make use of their on-going success and share any lessons learned.
We are building on the ‘West End Buyers Club’, a shared supplier scheme pioneered by New West End Company, to roll this out LEN-wide with Baker Street Quarter Partnership, Marble Arch BID and beyond.
The ‘West End Buyers Club’ will harness our purchasing power by identifying commonly procured goods and services in the LEN area. It will reduce the number of delivery vehicles in the area and support suppliers who use ultra-low emission vehicles for making deliveries.

Up to 40% of deliveries to places of work are personal deliveries. People working in the Marylebone LEN can avoid the hassle of missed deliveries and help reduce emissions by using alternative ‘click & collect’ delivery services such as Amazon Lockers, CollectPlus, Doddle, HubBox and Parcelly, as well as help reduce congestion and improve air quality in central London.
