GreenFleet Arrive 'N' Drive
The UK’s leading ultra-low emission fleet event is back… And
what a line-up we have for you this year! Celebrating our 11th year at “The
Home of the Arrive’n’Drive” – Rockingham - we are once again delighted to bring
you the very latest in ultra-low emission vehicles and technology, all of which
is designed to help fleets to “go ultra-low”.
industry has made some terrific steps forward in reducing carbon emissions,
across the UK, in general, but in particular, in the UK’s major cities.
However, when the message was “reduce CO₂, use electric, hybrid or if not, then low-emission diesel”… we,
as a sector took note, acted, and helped make a significant impact. Now, we’re
being told that as a result, the NOx levels in some of the UK’s major cities is
having a serious impact on air quality, and as a result, we’re now being
pressed to act again!
thing is for sure… Other major UK cities will be told to follow London’s lead
and implement a “Clean Air Zone” to help improve air quality. This will mean a
variety of restrictions being placed on organisations that operate vehicles in
their centres, and this event is designed to help you make the right decision…
“Right Vehicle… Right Choice”.
news coming out of government continues to indicate their desire to help the
industry go ultra-low, with the plug-in car and van grants still available.
More recently, Transport Minister Andrew Jones announced £19 million funding to
help the freight industry cut vehicle emissions and unveiled a new
to £19 million will be available to support the freight industry’s efforts to
reduce vehicle emissions, and the money will help fleets of commercial vehicles
access the very latest in innovative low and zero emission vehicle
funding will be available for applications from small local delivery firms as
well large distribution HGV fleets. Part of the funding will also go towards
new alternative fuel infrastructure such as electric vehicle chargepoints. The
competition will open for bids in July.
summary, this event allows fleet managers and professionals, as well as those
responsible for their organisation’s environmental and sustainability plans, to
test drive the vehicles and put them through their paces, in a controlled
environment, on a world class race track.
