The Noise Abatement Society (NAS) conceived Silent Approach™, a collaborative holistic scheme to enable swift, efficient deliveries without causing noise disturbances to residents in order to reduce congestion and help improve air quality and safety in our towns and cities.
In this episode of The Quiet Mark Podcast, we discuss Silent Approach™ with NAS MD, Lisa Lavia and also hear from some of the companies who partnered in the scheme, and whose Quiet Mark certified products helped make it a great success; proving that it is possible to make quiet deliveries, anywhere, at any time of day.
Those guests include:
Christopher Hanson-Abbott - Chairman at Brigade Electronics Group Plc
Emily Hardy - UK Marketing Manager at Brigade Electronics UK LTD
Jann Hansen - Vice President, Sales & Product Management, MOFFETT, PRINCETON Truck Mounted Forklifts, HIAB
Carl Fordham - Managing Director at Rolltek International Ltd
Silent Approach™ was used as the basis for trials across the UK by the Department for Transport in a consortium with the NAS and the Freight Transport Association called the Quiet Delivery Demonstration Scheme which has informed Transport for London’s ‘anytime delivery’ programme.
NAS was at the heart of this work carried out in London, the results of which are viewed by cities all over the world as examples of successful sustainable logistics.
