Land-Use Related Freight Transport Challenges and Opportunities in London

The Peer-to-Peer Exchange Program is designed to share global cases of best practices and real world examples of sustainable urban freight systems. This program is open to anyone with a professional or a personal interest in freight transportation issues. Professional Development Hours will be provided to those interested.

In this webinar, Mr. Paul Strang from Transport for London (TfL) and Mr. Julian Allen from the University of Westminster will discuss the challenges and opportunities related to the interface between land-use and freight transport in London.

The webinar will present a public sector perspective on the current framework for managing freight transport in order to meet economic, safety and environmental objectives. Insight into TfL’s work in addressing freight transport issues and perspectives into future directions for urban freight policy-making will be presented.

The discussion will cover barriers to, and opportunities for, urban freight transport and land-use interactions, taking into account the mixing of residential and industrial land-uses. Additionally, the discussion will touch on the logistics land-use trends, the availability and affordability of logistics land and the increase in freight intensity that occurs as the distance between depots and their delivery area in London increases.

The strategic responses taken to logistics land availability pressures and the research into reducing the traffic intensity of road and curbside use from the perspective of sites that generate freight trips will also be discussed.
