JIOTD – Join your council-sponsored or funded delivery scheme

If your council sponsors or provides a local delivery scheme, maybe to help reduce traffic, carbon emissions and pollution, maybe to help those unable or unwilling to venture out during the covid crisis, then this could be helpful to your business.

It helps also to support your social responsibility credentials.

One example of such a scheme is the ZED (Zero Emissions Delivery) service in Waltham Forest, London. This provides a local delivery service on bikes, or for larger deliveries, in electric vehicles.

If there is such a service in your locality then there are important benefits available to you. If not, then maybe it’s time to raise this with your local council..
