Smart Electric Urban Logistics Launch Event3rd July 2018 / Posted by Carol Quamina
At the UPS Sustainable Logistics event on 19 June Smart Electric Urban Logistics (SEUL) partners invited stakeholders, funders and partners to officially launch the project. Shirley Rodrigues, Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy, opened the event underlining the importance of the electrification of fleets in addressing London’s air pollution and the role a unique project such as SEUL plays in paving the way.
Taking place in an operational logistics setting at the UPS central London depot in Camden, the event allowed stakeholders to fully explore the challenges and opportunities around the electrification of fleets and low impact city logistics. At three stands, partners presented and discussed various elements of this work: 1) The UPS EV journey; 2) The smarter use of our electricity grid to enable fleet electrification and 3) low impact city logistics through the use of an electrically assisted delivery trailer.
CRP will further share the SEUL learnings over the coming year through factsheets, events and webinars. For more information, please see the project webpage here or contact CRP’s Programme Manager Electric Freight Tanja Dalle-Muenchmeyer.
