Did you know that a single cafĂ© in a CBD can receive more than 16 separate deliveries in a day?  Imagine how many deliveries occur in one day across an entire city across all cafes and restaurants.

A recent study identified the benefits of government working with industry and business to change delivery patterns by extending delivery hours.  The study involved trials in the City of Gold Coast in preparation for road closures during the Commonwealth Games in 2018.

Internationally, re-timing deliveries has been successfully demonstrated in cities such as New York, Barcelona, Dublin and London. Transport for London (TfL) suggest that more than 90% of urban freight is transported by road, and during peak hours, freight vehicles account for 25% of traffic.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about the

  • background of the study
  • challenges of delivering into shops, hospitals and hotels in urban and city areas
  • process of collaborating and working toward more efficient and sustainable deliveries.

Join in a live Q&A with our expert panel to have your questions answered.
