Answered By:

A Freight Management Plan has been developed by the project, working with businesses, Transport for London (TfL) and Westminster City Council.

This includes working with businesses throughout the district to understand their current freight activity and how it could be adapted to be as efficient as possible in future. Looking at options for increased use of consolidation throughout the supply chain is a key part of TfL's overall freight strategy. This includes working with central London Business Improvement Districts to develop local consolidation strategies that include waste consolidation, shared procurement and use of micro-consolidation centres. Freight consolidation is one tool that can be used and the project team will continue to work with businesses to determine and implement the most effective approaches. There is already a freight consolidation centre in operation, managed by the Crown Estate, and we will seek to optimise its use.
