London

New distribution models and clean vehicles

March 3rd 2021

The main aim is to demonstrate and understand how to grow the business model of electric freight in urban logistics. The London implementation is run by a large parcel carrier specialised in B2B deliveries (TNT) and a small ‘last-mile’ carrier specialised in electric freight deliveries (Gnewt Cargo).

BAU TNT deliveries in London are performed by TNT (20 routes - diesel vans)
A1 TNT deliveries in London are performed by Gnewt Cargo - no consolidation with other Gnewt Cargo volume (15 routes - electric vans)
A2 TNT deliveries in London are performed by Gnewt Cargo - consolidation with other Gnewt Cargo volume in the same route/vehicle (20 routes - elctric vans - from multiple Gnewt Cargo depots)
A3 TNT deliveries in London are performed by Gnewt Cargo - consolidation with other Gnewt Cargo volume in the same route/vehicle (20 routes - electric vans - from an optimised, single Gnewt Cargo depot)
