Transport Manager Conferences to help fleets plan for air quality changes

This autumn’s Freight Transport Association (FTA) Transport Manager Conferences will help fleets minimise the impact of forthcoming Air Quality Plan changes on their operations.

Delegates will be given advice to help minimise impact on business.

With cities across the UK expected to start levying charges on older HGVs and vans between early 2019 and the end of 2020, operators are being urged to plan procurement or other coping strategies now to ensure the business impact is minimised.

The Freight Transport Association’s Transport Manager Conferences, sponsored by Iveco, will brief this autumn on this topic, ensuring attendees have the latest information about what will happen where, which vehicles will be affected, and how best to plan for them.

FTA’s head of national & regional policy, Christopher Snelling, who will be leading the session, said: “Over the next three years a series of blanket restrictions will come into force in UK cities for HGVs and vans. With retrofitting of existing vehicles unlikely to be an option for most operators, transport managers need to be prepared for what is ahead, so the procurement of future fleets can be planned.”
