Urban Logistics Cooperation platform kicks off in Cambridge!On Wednesday 10th June 2015 the first Urban Logistics Cooperation Platform meeting in Cambridge was held at Cambridgeshire County Council’s Shire Hall building.
The agenda included a presentation from Gary Armstrong of Outspoken Delivery before a semi-structured discussion took place about how to support and grow the Cyclelogistics industry in Cambridge.
The participants included small business owners who are already using cargo bikes to deliver goods and services and are interested in business expansion, representatives from some large local employers who would like to use Cyclelogistics more in their day to day operations, as well as the head of the Cambridge Business Improvement District (BID) and representatives from various departments in the local authority.
The meeting already proved itself to be a useful forum for local businesses to shape the approach to deliveries in the city and it was also quite timely as a review of the Cambridge city centre access plans are currently taking place. It is hoped that some of the current restrictions for delivery vehicles will be extended, forcing delivery companies to seek alternative methods to fulfil their deliveries. This could be a real opportunity for Cyclelogistics to take centre stage in Cambridge.
