CRP’s practical steps towards zero emissions urban logistics – World Car Free Day Summit 2020

21st September 2020 / Posted by CRP Team

CRP was delighted to present a practical workshop at this year’s virtual international World Car Free Day Summit. The session demonstrated examples of low emission freight strategies that businesses can implement across their operations, to not only improve air quality for urban areas, but also increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and develop more robust future-proof methods of delivery.

From last mile deliveries and consolidation, to cycle freight and fleet electrification, the workshop led the audience through practical case studies from CRP’s Clean Air Villages project and the outcomes and considerations from CRP’s rich collection of freight related past projects it has led over the years. In spite of the economic crisis brought about from the global pandemic, there is a renewed effort to accelerate transitions to car-free methods of delivery, with businesses using this time to evaluate their transport methods as customer and consumer behaviour shifts. The World Car Free Day Summit 2020 was a brilliant chance to hear examples from across the world on how healthy cities can thrive with less cars, lower pollution, and more opportunities for pedestrian priority spaces.
