40,000 truck deliveries to a boat: Guy’s & St Thomas’ journey to improve local air quality

17 Jun 2021
FZ - Sustainability

In 2019, a truck delivery was arriving at Guy’s & St Thomas’ loading bays on average every three minutes with over 40,000 deliveries per year. This session will look at how the trust built the business case to establish an off-site consolidation centre, and will explore how the new service model was implemented during the pandemic. The trust will also share learnings on how large electric trucks and a new river cargo service has become the new fleet of choice as they work towards a greener NHS.

This session is part of the Sustainability Feature Zone supported by Boehringer Ingelheim Ltd.
