FTA talks to members about clean air zones

Conferences are to be organised by the Freight Transport Association (FTA) is to discuss strategies for coping with new Clean Air Zones (CAZs) around the UK.

Punitive charges are to be put in place for many HGVs and vans that do not meet European emissions standards. The FTA says that the best way forward is to slowly procure fleets of cleaner vehicles, and fleet procurement strategies will be core to the Fleet Manager series of conferences.

Natalie Chapman, FTA’s Head of Urban Policy, said: “While the logistics sector is fully committed to reducing vehicle emissions wherever possible and acknowledges the role the industry must play in improving the air quality of our cities, the introduction of a complex and messy patchwork of schemes presents businesses with a difficult task. The aim of this session is to demystify the subject for delegates and enable them to plan procurement of fleets and other strategies so they can keep trading effectively and carry on supplying our cities with everything they need.”
