If you deliver in the North-West part of the City of Toronto (Duke Heights BIA Area – see picture below), you are invited to join a new freight forum to connect with customers and shape the future of goods movement in the area.
The Pembina Institute received funding from The Atmospheric Fund (TAF) to develop a 3-year pilot for the establishment of a neighbourhood freight forum which will be designed to address challenges that impact companies’ bottom lines and to identify on-the-ground solutions to improve traffic congestion, improve fuel efficiency (by reducing idle and loading/off-loading times) and improve safety on urban streets. This is being done with great success in many cities across Europe and there is a win-win for business, local communities and the environment within a Canadian context.
The Pembina Institute is engaging with local businesses and shippers/carriers that travel in and through the DUKE Heights BIA area through this forum. The kick-off event will be held on April 27th from 12.00-3.00 pm (lunch provided) at 130 Toro Road, Toronto.
The Pembina Institute is looking for companies to attend and share their experiences and insights. Registration for this free event is now available and companies can register here.
