This Data Report contains the data of the third set of Agile Urban Logistics trials that were funded by the Mayor of London and delivered by Gnewt Cargo in partnership with the University of Westminster in 2015 to 2017.
The Agile Urban Logistics project was delivered under the Mayor’s Smart London Demonstrator programme. The aim was to trial innovative solutions for the light freight sector that allows it to adapt to changing regulatory and market conditions, mitigating congestion and emissions impacts.
Agile 3: Single-carrier consolidation trial
The trial explored scenarios for consolidating deliveries of multiple retail and non- retail clients using a single carrier (Gnewt Cargo) in a single van. All deliveries were done using electric vans. The aim of the trial was to reduce the number of delivery trips, reduce congestion and improve air quality outputs compared to a diesel equivalent approach by utilizing zero emissions electric freight delivery vehicles.
