Freight Consolidation Future Options

20/12/2016 - Freight Consolidation Future Options

The Cabinet Member agrees that Option 1 -the preferred option- is approved and adopted. This includes the following actions:


A) The current Freight Consolidation Centre is closed at the end of March 2017 with contract notice submitted on the 30th December 2016



B) To mitigate the service impacts from the closure, grant money from the Go Ultra Low Office of Low Emission Vehicles (GUL OLEV) will be used to scope and pilot an alternative consolidation method using small electric delivery trucks and/or electric bicycles serving the city centre.
