Campaign highlights: vans to be considered as part of discussions on Zero-Emission HGV Infrastructure Strategy


With less than seven years before sales of new diesel and petrol vans stop, just over a decade until the sales of new hybrid vans and non-zero emission tailpipe trucks under 26 tonnes cease, and 2040 marking the end of sales of all non-zero emission tailpipe HGVs, there are increasing calls for government to publish a strategy to provide clarity on fleet charging infrastructure.

With less than seven years before sales of new diesel and petrol vans stop, just over a decade until the sales of new hybrid vans and non-zero emission tailpipe trucks under 26 tonnes cease, and 2040 marking the end of sales of all non-zero emission tailpipe HGVs, there are increasing calls for government to publish a strategy to provide clarity on fleet charging infrastructure.

The strategy, earmarked for early 2024, is expected to draw on the expertise of the Freight Council, the Freight Energy Forum, and industry stakeholders to set a strategic direction and outline the respective roles and responsibilities of both government and industry.

Logistics UK is pleased to get confirmation on the strategy publication timeline, as well as receiving confirmation at the last Freight Energy Forum that an agreement has been obtained that vans will be addressed as part of wider discussions. This is a result of Logistics UK having pressed for the inclusion of vans amongst discussions in the strategy development.

Logistics UK welcomes that the government is considering van needs in the transition to decarbonise, as well as HGVs and larger vehicles.
