Managing the Olympics
The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games are going to cause huge disruption to transport in London over a prolonged period. According to Transport for London (TfL) and the e-tail trade body, IMRG, between 21st July (arrival of torch relay in London) and the 10th September 2011 (day after the close of the Paralympics), these restrictions are expected to cause the most wide-ranging disruption to online fulfilment since e-retail began. London deliveries represent nearly a fifth of all deliveries in the UK and the number of deliveries made per driver is expected to halve.
