Freight on the rise as Thames Vision strategy starts to bear fruit

A 40% surge in the volume of freight moved between wharves on the Thames is reported in a new Port of London Authority (PLA) update on progress towards delivering the Thames Vision, an ambitious plan to maximise use of the river.

The use of the river to move freight to destinations in the city is a boon for the transport network of London and the South East. Last year 3.4 million tonnes was moved on the river, just 0.6 million tonnes short of the Vision target of four million tonnes, which would remove 400,000 lorries from the region’s congested roads.
