The City of London Corporation has approved its first Last Mile Logistics Hub to consolidate deliveries across central London, reduce traffic and cut harmful emissions.

The Planning and Transportation Committee approved the initiative which will transform 39 car parking spaces within the underutilised London Wall Car Park into a hub for Amazon Logistics.

The final leg of parcel deliveries will be undertaken by e-cargo bikes and people on foot, removing large numbers of delivery vehicles from City streets.
