That’s an important step towards exploring the use of the river for small scale freight transport
DHL Express has launched London’s first riverboat parcel delivery service. The company aims to ease congestion thus providing an efficient way of transporting deliveries across the capital.
The service has been introduced as part of DHL’s commitment to using blended transport modes to improve access to urban areas.
The riverboat service will run daily at 7:30 am, transporting packages into London. The shipments will be loaded from e-vehicles onto the riverboat at Wandsworth Riverside Quarter Pier. Afterward, they will be traveling into central London, docking at Bankside Pier for final mile delivery on DHL courier bicycles.
We’ve reported key trends shaping the logistics industry, according to DHL.
