Make Quicker, Cheaper and Greener Deliveries

Love Wimbledon has collaborated with Cross River Partnership, to offer our BID businesses the opportunity to trial a cargo bike delivery service which allows for quicker and cheaper deliveries, and helps to improve local air quality.

This is a part of Cross River Partnership’s ‘Clean Air Villages’ programme, which offers a free trial to businesses who are interested in transporting deliveries and services via zero-emission methods.

The trial involves use of a cargo bike and rider, for free, for a short period of time to allow businesses to determine whether they would like to take up this delivery mode.

Find out more and sign up by emailing laurajacklin@crossriverpartnership.org.

This is a great opportunity to explore cheaper and sustainable ways to deliver your products/services, given TFL’s new Low Emission Zone (LEZ) regulations, which will affect many business and delivery vehicles from 1st March 2021.

The LEZ will affect any of your suppliers who have larger vehicles (above 3.5 tonnes) and the enforcement of this will begin in March 2021, it will be operating 24/7 so will affect night deliveries too. The daily charge if vehicles aren’t compliant is £100 a day, which could affect costings of deliveries.

The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) operates to encourage the most polluting heavy diesel vehicles driving in London to become cleaner. The LEZ also covers most of Greater London and is separate from the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), which is in place in central London and operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year except Christmas Day.
