The City of London Corporation and GLA Gnewt Collaboration.



City of London Corporation

The emerging use of cargo cycle delivering clean air final mile has been challenged by the ability to park safely and securely.

Generating access to clean air final mile via this emerging vehicle use in the high density inner city area of London the challenge is finding parking for cargo cycles. City of London Corporation rose to the challenge to find dedicated secure parking for City Sprint Cargo cycles.

Placing the cargo cycle in the heart of final mile locations in the City of London. City of London Corporation have created a new season ticket for non-motorised vehicles at their public car parks. These commercial tickets are available to users at a 87.5% discount from traditional commercial season tickets to encourage their uptake. Users get allocated space(s) on which they can provide secure storage and charging facilities for cargo cycles or other non-motorised vehicles.


GLA Gnewt

The end of 2019 will mark the completion of a low emission freight project that trials solutions to cutting emissions and congestion from commercial delivery vehicles in urban areas. The findings from the project with Gnewt will provide recommendations for the wider roll-out of electric vehicle technology across the freight industry.

The Gnewt/Mayor of London’s Commercial Vehicle Trial compares the performance of innovative electric delivery vans to equivalent diesels. This project concludes later this year.

The project is part of the Low Emission Freight Trials, funded by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) in partnership with Innovate UK.
