A future without the White Van Man?Back

VansTransport for London (TfL) has launched an investigation into finding new ways of improving the efficiency and sustainability of commercial traffic in London.

TfL’s Transport Committee wants to hear your views and information to advise the investigation.

In a TfL statement, it was reported that ‘light commercial traffic makes up 13 per cent of all London’s road traffic, compared with 4 per cent for HGVs and 1.7 per cent for buses’. During the morning rush (peak time) 7,300 vans travel through London every hour.

A meeting will be held at the London Assembly in September 2015, where the Transport Committee will discuss the topic with experts. In preparation of this, a survey is also to be conducted which will include the following questions:

  1. To what extent does light commercial traffic contribute to traffic congestion in London, relative to other forms of road user?
  1. What is the current future impact of light commercial traffic on road congestion?
  1. How can drones, cycles and electric vehicles reduce the impact of commercial traffic in London?
  1. Will sustainable delivery options, Click&Collect, out-of-hours delivery options, consolidation centre and vans act as a substitute to HGVs, reduce commercial traffic and how can these services be enhanced further?

If you would like to respond to the investigation, please send your written submissions to by 4 September 2015 or alternatively, contact the NFDA Policy Department ( and we will look to put together an NFDA submission on behalf of members.

The Committee is aiming produce its report, outlining its findings and recommendations, during the first quarter of 2016.
