Pip Marshall @ Zedify UK
The use of microhubs and cargobikes can have a transformative effect on urban logistics. Smaller hubs closer to end customers enable operations to be more agile; making it easier to hit tighter delivery windows and allowing riders to do multiple rounds per day. In conjunction with this, using cargobikes for deliveries creates massive efficiencies and reduces carbon emissions enormously. Not only do cargobikes produce 96% less emissions than electric vans, they are also able to capitalise on cycle lanes and easy parking to save time.
Nancy Hobhouse @ EVRi
Becoming a true ESG champion is a mission for every organisation but the road to carbon neutral operations is a bumpy one.

Emily Carpendale @ Backhouse Jones
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) is set to be the next key phrase in the world of business. With many customers, consumers and big corporations focusing on responsible business practices, more companies are having to assess their own impact on the environment, how they treat their employees, customers and the local community and governance aspects such as audits, internal controls and shareholder rights. Emily will discuss how ESG relates specifically to the logistics industry and what actions operators can take going forward to lead the way.
