Sustainable last-mile delivery solutions that combat rising congestion concerns

How far has the ULEZ expanded across London?

With London transport contributing to much of the air pollution across the UK, ULEZ was introduced in 2017 with an aim to combat the rising pollution toxic to residents and visitors of the UK Capital. ‘Toxic air pollution increases your risk of heart and lung disease, worsens chronic illnesses such as asthma and puts children’s health at risk (tfl.gov.uk). The ULEZ is in place 24 hours a day, 364 days a year (Christmas day is not included). 

Since it’s introduction, the ULEZ has seen many vehicle owners across London clean up their cars with 80% of vehicles now being compliant and avoiding that charge. In October 2021, the ULEZ was expanded from its original location in Central London and now covers a single larger zone up to the North and South Circular roads (without covering these roads completely). Mango Logistics is at the forefront of sustainable last-mile delivery solutions that don’t contribute to rising congestion.

How is the logistics industry affected by the increased ULEZ?

It is estimated that between 2020-2021, over 4.2 billion parcels were delivered across London alone. With this staggering amount only set to increase as we move into an increasingly eCommerce focused marketplace, it has never been more important to work with a sustainable logistics company that is working to improve its carbon footprint.

You may find your trusted logistics team suddenly increasing their prices or starting to change their vehicle fleet. To avoid and reduce charges from driving in the ULEZ, logistics companies have to move forward with their sustainability plans to remain competitive within the industry. E-Cargo bikes and pushbikes will become more visible on the London roads and companies should start looking at greener alternatives to last-mile delivery solutions.
