Freight Quality Partnerships or FQPs are groups of transport operators and local authorities that come together to deal with matters of freight access and deliveries in a particular location[citation needed]. FQPs are regarded as best practice by the Department of Transport (DfT) [1] Best practice is published by the Energy Savings Trust (on behalf of DfT). In recent years there has been a shift of transportation companies and organizations that have consolidated these shipping resources in order to provide the end user with a better experience.[2] Two booklets are available: "A guide on how to set up and run Freight Quality Partnerships",[3] and "Freight Quality Partnerships - Case Studies" [4]

Some of these are small geographically, i.e. covering only one business estate, e.g. Brimsdown Business Area in Enfield, whilst others cover larger areas, such as West London .

Some are funded by the members themselves, others by regional authorities, e.g. Transport for London (TfL). Freight Quality Partnerships are a key part of TfL's London Freight Plan.[5] Transport for London hosts an umbrella website for London's FQPs [6]

Within London the current FQPs are:

Brimsdown FQP [7].

Central London FQP [8], managed by the Central London Partnership [9].

West London FQP [10], managed by MVA Consulting.[11]

South London FQP [12], managed by TTR Ltd.[13]

Thames Gateway FQP [14], managed by Intermodality. [15]

Islington FQP, managed by Steer Davies Gleave.

Outside of London there are many FQPs including:

Cambridgeshire FQP.

Oxfordshire FQP.

Tyne and Wear FQP [16], managed by AECOM. [17]


The Freight Quality Partnership Network (FQPN) is a discussion forum available to members of the Freight Transport Association.[7]
