Loads Easier: Unlocking the power of the kerb

Stantec and Grid Smarter Cities launch new research that uncovers kerbside management as a greener, smarter solution to managing the growing freight delivery challenge in London.


Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the lives of the people living in cities; enabling smarter, cost-efficient services that result in positive social, economic and environmental outcomes and sustainable revenues for the city.

  • Delivery

    Effectively managing our cities’ kerb space aids efficient deliveries, helps re-invigorate our high streets and minimises the negative impacts on the environment.

  • Freight

    We look to optimise the movement of freight, reducing the impact of circling vehicles and improving operational efficiency, which consequently reduces congestion and achieves better air quality

  • Mobility

    We use smart, inclusive technology to create better access for those looking to get from A to B, connecting users to service providers to aid independence.

  • Construction Freight

    We build on the optimisation of the kerb space to facilitate vehicle holding areas, timed delivery slots and loading bays, prescribed routes and effective, practical and enforceable construction logistics plans.
