How to get your product in front of 1,000 urban logistics professionals
Do you want to meet 1,000 urban logistics professionals from across the industry?
Taking place on 6 November 2019 in London’s Alexandra Palace, Freight in the City Expo will be full of key decision-makers looking for the latest technology and equipment to make urban freight movements safer, cleaner, quieter and more efficient.
“With a great turning circle and a small footprint, our Goupil Range are bang on the money for city use. Freight in the City was the obvious place to take them. It’s a great place to meet with the industry and our customers.” Drew Bradshaw, joint managing director, Bradshaw Electric Vehicles
Visitors to the exhibition are interested in topics ranging from zero-emission zones through to autonomous last-mile deliveries and smarter ways to transport goods, from the smallest parcels to the largest aggregates. So if you have products aimed at this field, then this is the perfect opportunity to talk to buyers.
Seminars will take place throughout the day in the hall, led by a top line-up of industry experts examining successful trials and urban logistics projects taking place throughout the world. These are held in the centre of the exhibition hall surrounded by stands, creating a flow of foot traffic through the area.
Exhibitors also benefit from editorial exposure on the Motor Transport and Commercial Motor websites, stories in the fortnightly Freight in the City newsletter, and featuring in the marketing campaign for the event across email and social media channels.
“It’s the ideal opportunity for businesses looking to highlight their range of city fleet technology, vehicles and services to an engaged audience of urban logistics stakeholders.” Hayley Pink, urban editor, Motor Transport

Lymm Truckwash moves 100m away from current spot
Lymm Truckwash has invested £2.3m in a relocation process that sees the business move 100m from its current location.
The family-owned Cheshire-based firm is currently located just off junction 20 of the M6 and junction 9 of the M56, near Warrington, and will move to the opposite side of the A50 this autumn.
MD of Lymm Truckwash, Laura Cardwell, said: “This is an exciting move for our company. We’re investing £2.3m into the new site to make sure we continue to provide the excellent service our customers are used to and expect.”
The decision to move was made in March 2016 after Lymm Truckwash wasn’t able to extend its lease of land within Lymm Services beyond December 2019. After carrying out market research, 80% of its customers were found to only use the washing facilities without going into the services, which provided Cardwell the confidence to secure planning permission for a new and independent site.
“The new facility will feature state-of-the-art WashTec washes, alongside a bespoke pressure washer system and payment system with automatic number pate recognition (ANPR). The site will also be quicker and easier for our customers to access from the motorway because they’ll no longer have to enter and exit Lymm Services,” she added.
This will add to the recent rebranding and launching of Lymm Truckwash’s website, which features regular updates on the relocation process.
“We’ll continue at our current site until we’re ready to open the new premises in the autumn,” added Cardwell. “Our customers can expect a seamless transition with no shutdown of our wash facility.”
The company currently washes 62,000 trucks per year, with fleet customers including BP, DHL and AW Jenkinson.
