"This year has proven just how essential the uninterrupted supply of goods into our towns and cities is to keep key frontline services functioning and consumers stocked up" 

Freight in the City is back this autumn, bringing together influential stakeholders from the urban delivery sector in a key one-day event. Now in its sixth year at London’s Alexandra Palace, Freight in the City is your chance to hear from top policy-makers and operators on cutting-edge strategies to ensure safe, sustainable goods movements in cities.

Our line-up of exhibitors will also be showcasing the latest ultra-clean delivery vehicles and fleet technology: from electric micro-vehicles and vans, up to the largest HGVs and double-deck trailers designed with urban deliveries at their core. “This year, more than ever before, has proven just how essential the uninterrupted supply of goods into our towns and cities is to keep key frontline services functioning and consumers stocked up on essential groceries during the coronavirus pandemic,” said Hayley Pink, events and projects editor. “This event will highlight best practice delivery models from leading fleet operators, as well as city policy that not only tackles air pollution and road safety, but also takes into account the needs of businesses to function efficiently.

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!
