The perfect location for a logistics hub that ticks the crucial boxes of sustainability, will have a few key ingredients. One will be a great inbound access so supply chains are not disrupted and there is no double handling.
‘There needs to be a proximity to a very dense delivery area,’ says Mike Best, from British Land. Mike is joining us on the 24th May, Wednesday, for a session on ESG Construction in Logistics. You can get a ticket now!
Cycling infrastructure will also be critical, so deliveries can be done sustainably. Congestion data and population data also play a role, as businesses can better understand what works where. Mike covered some of these essentials in an online presentation during our Delivering Green: Creating Sustainable Supply Chains Online event. You can watch the full recording below.
During his session on the 24th May, Mike will take a look at how logistics operators should engage with local authorities and communities when designing and building new, urban facilities. He will also talk about the conflicting interests of central location hungry for residential developments, but also looking for green deliveries.
