Smart deliveries

Freight plays an essential role within the LEN, from stocking our supermarkets with fresh produce to delivering coffee to our favourite coffee shops; the importance of freight cannot be underestimated.

Through better management of freight deliveries (including personal deliveries), we can reduce the number freight movements throughout the Marylebone LEN. The Freight, Delivery and Servicing Group are shaping the Delivery and Servicing Programme, which seeks to consolidate delivery and services wherever feasible.

Such services will include an online tool to help businesses identify relevant actions to reduce the impact of deliveries (www.deliverbest.london), enhancing business engagement activities that promote improved approaches to delivery and servicing, providing a directory of green suppliers (www.westendbuyersclub.london), as well as encouraging people to receive deliveries nearer home (www.clickcollect.london).
