AppyWay, the kerbside management and mobility technology firm, has partnered with Transport for London and the London Freightlab to pilot kerbside management tools for freight and service vehicles in the capital.
AppyWay will be offering digital parking and reservation services as part of the pilot. The company’s kerbside maps can detail a blueprint of all kerbside restrictions. Its software can also help track parking inventory and demand patterns.
The collaboration will play a role in the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy to create a freight and servicing action plan to tackle the poor air quality, congestion and road traffic.
The Freightlab was to tackle last mile delivery challenges through the Mayor of London’s Civic Innovation Challenge.
The TFL London FreightLab is specifically targeted at improving the efficiency of freight and servicing across Greater London.
AppyWay, among others, were tasked with pitching solutions to tackle the negative impacts on London’s route network and improving the operational efficiency of freight and servicing activity.
A spokesperson for AppyWay said: “The integration of a digital parking and reservation layer within the existing freight and traffic management processes is a quick win for a safe, low emission and thriving London.
“By tackling these quick wins, we can support freight and servicing in their move to EVs, and beyond, unlocking additional revenue as fleets look to optimise their operations.”
