Why are logistics hubs important to London and South East England?

Logistics hubs play a pivotal role in fostering healthy and efficient deliveries across London. By serving as a crucial step for consolidating deliveries, they significantly reduce the number of vehicle trips and congestion. This, in turn, paves the way for last-mile deliveries to be made by electric vehicles, bikes, or on foot, thereby contributing to a significant reduction in harmful exposure to toxic air pollutants, a major health concern in our urban environment.

Cross River Partnership developed the Urban Logistics Hubs webpage as part of the Defra-funded Clean Air Villages 4 project. We also worked with transport consultants Steer to identify potential logistics hub sites in London in this report funded by Transport for London and supported by the Central London Sub-Regional Transport Partnership.
