. Finding solutions to manage the last mile of deliveries that work for businesses, consumers and the environment is increasingly important. Through LaMiLo, the Institute has been working on a number of pilot projects across North West Europe to look at how last mile deliveries can be streamlined. Camden Council’s work enables others to follow their lead to reduce air pollution, reduce congestion and combat climate change.”
The LBCC also demonstrated that by consolidating orders, cost savings can be made based on the decreased mileage that suppliers travel and enables bulk purchasing of non-perishable goods, such as office supplies, to be stored until needed. By adopting new practices around ordering, greater operational and economic efficiency can be achieved.
Through a range of activity, the LaMiLo project is engaging with private and public sector organisations, as well as end users, to help influence their behaviour to adopt more efficient and sustainable last mile practices. LaMiLo is an INTERREG NWE IVB programme project part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
