The 4th Freight in the City Expo will take place on 6 November 2018 at Alexandra Palace, London. 

As cities strive to improve air quality through the rollout of clean air zones, freight operators must step up to the low-emission challenge or face the prospect of significant fines to enter urban areas. The Freight in the City Expo looks to support freight operators through this process with a comprehensive seminar programme covering key questions from the urban freight market and by showcasing cutting edge vehicles, equipment and technologies in Alexandra Palace's Great Hall.

Registration for Freight in the City Expo is free, so sign up below today to secure your place.

There are some great new products and services on show at Freight in the City 2018, where innovation will be one of the main themes in the Exhibitor Zone. 

Fleet operators in urban environments are facing new standards for everything from emissions to road safety. It's important to stay up-to-date with products, services and technology which will keep your company out in front.

This year’s show will feature a range of products aimed at making sure commercial vehicles fleets and their drivers are as safe and compliant as possible when delivering to towns and cities.

Freight in the City Expo offers you a unique opportunity to meet with over 50 exhibitors and experience the latest innovations and product launches.

With a great turning circle and a small footprint, our Goupil Range are bang on the money for city use. Freight in the City was the obvious place to take them. It’s a great place to meet with the industry and our customers.
