Last mile deliveries examined at Future Mobility Congress

Smart, integrated urban delivery options fit for the future will be debated this July at the BVRLA’s Future Mobility Congress.

As the number of Clean Air Zones (CAZs) across the country increases over the coming years, commercial vehicles will be  hardest hit. Freight operators face the toughest challenge from CAZs, as they have longer fleet cycles and will struggle to afford or find sufficient compliant vehicles in time.  

Over 90% of everything eaten, drunk, worn and built-with will travel on a truck at some point in the supply chain it’s  vital to ensure goods can still be delivered within urban areas. 

This challenge for ‘Last Mile’ deliverieswill be the focus of a session at the BVRLA’s Future Mobility Congress in Birmingham on 4th July. A group of experienced delivery and logistics experts will offer insights into how they are currently using last mile deliveries as well as discussing where the future could lie for urban freight. The session will be chaired by Jay Parmer, BVRLA Director of Policy and Membership and will hear presentations from:
