Green delivery hub project could help cut pollution in Stratford-Upon-Avon

WORK has started on a project that could see the introduction of a green, last-mile delivery service in Stratford with the aim of cutting vehicle emissions.

If successful, delivery companies would stop at a hub on the outskirts of town to unload and goods would then be taken to homes and businesses by electric vehicles or possibly cargo bikes.

Entitled Project Damascus, the initial feasibility research, which is being funded by the government’s Geospatial Commission, will focus on consolidating the deliveries from 16 national companies.

The project is being led by the TravelSpirit Foundation and is supported by Stratford Climate Action and Stratford Town Council.
