‘Parcel porter’ delivery trial
LoCITY Champion Gnewt Cargo is participating in a trial to investigate whether ‘parcel porters’ could help reduce carbon emissions from delivery vans.
Researchers from four universities are delivering the project, in which porters will meet with van drivers at the kerbside and receive pre-prepared bags of parcels to deliver to homes and offices on foot.
It is expected that this could reduce the amount of time vans spend out on delivery, thus improving local air pollution due to the decreased mileage per round.
