New Lunchtime Launch Events for 2021!

19th January 2021 / Posted by Joshua West

CRP is very excited to announce a new series of monthly Lunchtime Launch events! These will be interactive, online discussions showcasing the innovative projects that CRP is delivering to drive positive change for London’s residents, businesses and visitors.

Our first Lunchtime Launch is Developing the Future of Freight Logistics in London, which will be taking place on Thursday 28th January, 1:15pm – 2pm.

Sign up here.  

For this event, CRP will be launching its new research report, The Potential for Urban Logistics Hubs in Central London, which was commissioned on behalf of the Central London Sub Regional Transport Partnership (CLSRTP), funded by Transport for London. This report identifies the market demand and locations for sustainable last mile freight delivery hubs, in collaboration with Local Authorities, landowners, Business Improvement Districts and freight operators.

We’ll be joined by expert speakers:

  • Barry Smith – Head of Policy and Strategy (West End Partnership) at Westminster City Council, who will be discussing the importance of this study for future logistics in Central London, and specifically the initiatives currently taking place in the City of Westminster.
  • Julie Bowerman – Director at Steer, who will be presenting on the findings of the Potential for Urban Logistics Hubs in Central London study.
  • Laura Jacklin – Senior Project Officer at Cross River Partnership, who will be speaking about how urban logistics hubs have an important role to play in promoting clean and efficient freight activity across the capital.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
