Logistics UK reacts to launch of ULEZ expansion consultation
Friday 20 May 2022
Speaking on the launch of the ULEZ expansion consultation, Natalie Chapman, Logistics UK’s Head of Policy – South, comments:
“Industry is fully committed to introducing cleaner vehicles however, recent challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic have slowed the supply of these vehicles. Until they are available, Logistics UK is urging TfL to consider mitigations – such as those currently being implemented by councils that have introduced Clean Air Zones (CAZs) – for those that have ordered, and are awaiting the delivery of, these cleaner vehicles. We must ensure London’s business and homes continue to be supplied with the goods they need.”
