London lorry route approver service

Mapping specialist PIE is offering a London Lorry Route Approver service to streamline applications for routes in the London Lorry Control Scheme.

The scheme controls the movement of any HGVs at night and weekends on specific roads known as the Excluded Road Network.

Previously hauliers would have to submit applications to various London councils, await approvals and receipt of a route card. The new system combines these processes into one online process.

Freddie Talberg, chief executive of PIE said: “More than 3,000 penalty charge notices were handed out last year, costing hauliers and drivers upwards of £1 million, but getting sign off of routes has been a time-consuming process – until now.”
