IoC chairman Carl Lomas was in Guildhall yard, City of London to see it turned green by TfL for a fully-booked LoCity conference focused on clean air to save lives.

Electric vehicles, large and small were parked across the yard, even a hydrogen motor van alongside an electric cargo trike for final-mile.

Excellent and informative low emission speeches, breadth and width of logistics with a speed dating session.

Two minute technology talks in a roller coaster run of alternative fuel to consolidation solutions to bring down emissions.

 

 

Standing room only, Mike Brown, TfL boss gave the keynote speech,

Everyone has a part to play in saving lives with clean air solutions. We have a new mayor and many changes to the London assembly. Sadiq Khan is committed to reducing emissions. I too am committed to clean air, ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ) will be introduced in 2020, this will be the first ULEZ in the World. Gnewt Cargo provided the final mile for the LoCity conference exhibitors and they did it with an electric van fleet.
