Making strides with the Fitzrovia Walking Freight Trial

21st February 2023 / Posted by Katherine Fairfax

As part of the Defra-funded Clean Air Logistics for London Programme, CRP are currently working closely with The Fitzrovia PartnershipCamden CouncilUPS and Heals to implement a walking freight trial to service the Fitzrovia area.

This exciting trial will be the first walking freight trial to take place on public land and aims to address issues of traffic congestion and air pollution. During the trial goods will be delivered within the local area using a UPS ewalker (pictured) which will be stored locally. An electric vehicle will also be used to transport goods from the local depot to the Fitzrovia area.

The trial builds on previous walking freight work, including CRP’s Walking Freight Feasibility Study and Report Summary produced by Steer. For more information on the trial, please contact CRP Programme Manager Fiona Coull
