Newcastle University is a Russell Group University of circa 25,000 staff and students in the region of Tyne and Wear with a population of 1.1 million inhabitants.

Newcastle University is developing a sustainable campus which balances open liveable spaces free of intrusion and the need to supply goods and services to the campus. The main aim is to inform the local freight community, local government and highway authorities, other local academics and consultants, local politicians, freight associations, and other large institutional purchasers of goods and services of the potential for sustainable urban freight using clean energy and associated interventions.
