Smarter Greener Logistics Update – Working with our Partners

27th February 2024 / Posted by Fiona Coull

CRP has been working closely with our partners to progress the Smarter Greener Logistics (SGL) programme. This month we have achieved some key milestones, none of which would have been possible without the hard work and enthusiasm of our Local Authority, BID, Strategic and Private sector partners. 

Here are some of the achievements we’ve delivered this month through collaborative and partnership working:  

  • This month CRP hosted a ‘Courier Fair’ at the University of Westminster. The event provided an informal forum for couriers, local authorities, BID and strategic agency officers, to share opportunities to collaborate and move forward the sustainable logistics agenda. Read our press release here
  • CRP has been working closely with GRID Smarter Cities, the London Boroughs of Camden, Lambeth and Richmond, and the City of London Corporation to develop a Virtual Loading Bay trial utilising digital kerbside management technology. This month saw a key milestone achieved with all the partners shortlisting two locations to take forward for the trial. 
  • Finally, following a successful 9-month trial period, the Pimlico Hub will be continuing to operate independently for the next year. The trial, which was delivered by CRP, Westminster City Council, Decarbon Logistics Solution, Delivery Mates and Q-Park, is a brilliant demonstration of how partnership working can lead to permanent and sustainable change.

Thank you to our SGL partners for your continued hard work!
