Celebrating five years of urban logistics best practice 

The 2019 Freight in the City Expo was all about innovation in city delivery vehicles. Several exciting new products made their UK debuts, such as Volvo’s autonomous, connected Vera and Scania’s hybrid L-series truck. There was also a brand-new micro vehicle and cargo bike zone to draw the crowds and an exciting virtual reality experience on Volta’s new electric delivery truck. More than half of the exhibitors this year were brand-new to the show and highlighted the exciting emergence of new technology for the urban logistics market. To see who exhibited at this year's show click here.

Alongside the exhibition, a packed seminar programme provided a forum to debate the challenges and explore the opportunities that continue to emerge in the urban logistics sector. Policy-makers, vehicle experts and leading freight operators shared their insight with delegates and generated lively debate. Topics ranged from zero-emission zones through to autonomous last-mile deliveries and smarter ways to transport goods, from the smallest parcels to the largest aggregates.

The 2019 Freight in the City event was Dawsongroup Truck & Trailer’s second year of exhibiting our Rental, Leasing and Contract Hire solutions for a ‘cleaner vehicle’ fleet. Our impression was of an event growing in importance and stature, with visitors deeply interested in what is moving rapidly from a ‘niche’ interest to a mainstream matter, as more and more local authorities invest in LEZ, ULEZ, Clean Air and other environmental strategies. We really enjoyed the day’s event and found ourselves to be extremely busy dealing with a number of enquiries and are already booking for 2020!
