Abstract

TRAILBLAZER – TRansport And Innovation Logistics By Local Authorities with a Zest for Efficiency and Realisation – is a three-year project which aims to cut energy use associated with urban freight activity. Transport and Travel Research (TTR) is the manager of the TRAILBLAZER project and has been working with local authorities in South London assisting them with their Delivery and Servicing Plan (DSP) – a key strategy document that outlines how an organisation will deal with its need to generate freight transport efficiently, safely and in a sustainable way. This paper explains the background to the project, describes the work that is being done in Sutton and outlines the next steps which include the development of DSPs by four PATHFINDER municipalities across Europe.
