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”.
Our 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!
One 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”.
The 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 accreditation scheme.
Up 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 technologies.
The 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.
In 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.
As usual, the event is FREE TO ATTEND, and comes with breakfast, all-day refreshments and a lovely buffet lunch. So, REGISTER NOW and join us on the day… It’ll be the best fleet decision you will make this year!
