Advice for deliveries during Olympics

Transport for London (TfL) is aiming to help with deliveries during the Olympics by issuing a code of practice for night-time deliveries.

During the 2012 Games many customers of wholesalers such as shops, pubs, offices, hotels and restaurants may opt for deliveries between midnight and 6am to avoid disruption.

The code of practice for quieter out-of-hours deliveries offers general guidance about what to consider, measures to reduce noise at the delivery point and measures for drivers.

Examples of measures include switching off refrigeration equipment in advance of arrival at the premises and minimising rattle from metal-on-metal contact when moving roll cages.

The information is available on the TfL website.
