Olympia London is making its mark in the events industry as a sustainable transport leader, with the launch of a second service to complement its new online vehicle booking system. The online vehicle share platform is a contemporary solution for today’s sharing economy set to significantly reduce the cost of freight transport for exhibitors.
Ian Wainwright, Head of Freight and Fleet Programmes at Transport for London, said: "It is great to see innovative ideas like this consolidation system. Streamlining deliveries and collections at Olympia London will help reduce unnecessary freight journeys into central London, cutting congestion for all road users and saving businesses money. By working together Olympia London’s clients will also improve air quality for all Londoners and help meet the Mayor's Cleaner Air for London targets."
