Transport for London (TfL) has regional responsibility for transport investments in the movement of people and goods across London. It funds over 40 freight posts across several organisations. Over the last three years, TfL’s Freight Unit developed the London Freight Plan and its key project, the Freight Operator Recognition Scheme, which was launched in 2008. Key activities of TfL in relation to freight include: develop a detailed understanding of urban freight and its regulatory framework, industry standards for legal compliance and uptake of best practices, clean, quiet and efficient technologies, collaborative partnerships, benefits/incentives schemes including training programmes, and links to procurement and land-use planning.
