Department for Transport trialling ‘more sustainable’ zero emission road freight with HGVs

Rob Lawton, Project Manager at Leyland Trucks, welcomed the partnership between his company and the Department for Transport.

He said: “We’re delighted to have been selected to play such a key role in the initiative and we’re proud to be leading the drive towards a cleaner, more sustainable future for the road transport industry.

“We believe our LF Electric and CF Electric vehicles offer the best solution for zero-emissions operation and we’re confident that the results from our NHS and local authority partners will support our own extensive and long-term testing programmes.”

This comes as the Government slowly rolls out their Transport Decarbonisation Plan, which aims to make the UK carbon neutral by 2050.
