RHA and Ministers have differing opinions over Mayor’s Direct Vision Permit Scheme

ukhaulier.co.uk - Wed 12th Sep 2018

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor for London has the backing of ministers with plans that all lorries entering London will need a permit, issued by Transport for London before they can enter the capital. Ministers have applied to the European Commission for approval of the scheme, as EU hauliers will also need a permit to enter London.

If and when the Commission gives the scheme the green light, from October 2020 all HGVs entering London will be assessed against the TfL-devised Direct Vision Standards and must obtain a permit from Transport for London.

TfL had previously claimed that around half of the lorries entering London will need to be fitted with additional safety equipment such as camera systems, audible turn warnings and side sensors with driver alerts before a permit can be issued.

Fines will be issued to operators of any lorry entering without a permit will faces fines of £550 , plus a personal fine for the driver of £150. The first phase is planned to run from October 2020 until 2024 at which time new standards, yet to be devised, will be mandated by TfL.

FTA says Customs Union is not enough to deliver frictionless trade

ukhaulier.co.uk - Mon 30th Apr 2018

Whilst the House of Commons prepares a vote on a motion on customs & borders (26 April 2018), the UK’s logistics industry has been reminding MPs about forming a customs union with the EU would not deliver frictionless arrangements on its own or remove the need for checks at the borders. Leaving the single market should also be considered to minimise regulatory barriers, removing the need for conformity or food safety checks at the borders, and to protect transport connectivity after Brexit.

The Port of Dover (the UK’s busiest transport hub with continental Europe) has more than 10,000 HGVs travel coming through it and the Eurotunnel each day . This icludes the highly efficient roll-on roll-off system which reduces, to a bare minimum, the waiting time at the borders, This in itself supports the just-in-time production processes and time sensitive deliveries.

Directly having an impact on over seven million people employed in the making, selling and moving of goods, efficient logistics is vital to keep Britain trading, . With Brexit, new technology and other disruptive forces driving change in the way goods move across borders logistics has never been more important to UK and it's business supply chain, .

HGVs being considered for 'Pay-per-mile' scheme

bbc.co.uk - Dec 23rd 2017

A 'pay per mile' scheme for lorries is being considered by the government to cover the increased damage to the road network.

Chris Grayling, the Transport Secretary has confirmed the current HGV levy, which is used to pay for wear and tear on the road network, was being consulted on.

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) have said they believe it unfair that lorries are targeted and need to see more detail.

Mr Grayling also pointed out on BBC Radio 4's Today programme that "Our hauliers often complain that a continental trucker comes in with a tank full of lower duty diesel, spends several days working in the country, goes away again and pays nothing towards the use of the roads."

A RHA spokeman said he was very worried by the announcement.

Mayor Khan’s Toxicity Charge about to come into force

theplanner.co.uk - Oct 23rd 2017

As of 23rd October Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has launched the ‘world’s toughest’ emission charge for the more polluting and older vehicles in an effort to tackle the capitals air pollution.

From 7am to 6pm every weekday a £10 Toxicity Charge (T-Charge) will be in force. Drivers of more polluting petrol and diesel cars will pay both the T-Charge and the Congestion Charge when driving into Zone 1, which totals a colossal £21.50.

This, according to the mayor’s office, means up to 34,000 vehicles every month could be liable for the T-Charge and affects those that do not meet the Euro 4 standard for both PM and NOx emissions. These vehicles are typically ones registered before 2006, but Transport for London (TfL) have also advised people who have cars registered before 2008 to check if their vehicle may be eligible for the charge.

The Mayor Khan says he has plans for the introduction of an Ultra-Low Emission Zone as early as April 2019. This will affect many more vehicles including all diesel vehicles that do not meet Euro 6 Standards.

French transport wine by ship using only wind power

thetimes.co.uk - Feb 13th 2016

This is an update on a story first published in 2008.
French vineyard owners are starting to export their wine by sailing boat - a method last used in the 1800s - to reduce their carbon footprint. Later this month, as many as 60,000 bottles will be shipped from Languedoc to Ireland by sail, saving 18,375lb of carbon. Further voyages to Bristol, Manchester and even Canada are being planned for soon afterwards.

The three masted ship, a barque named Belem, actually launched in 1896, will sail from Bordeaux to Dublin, which although it will take about four days, will be much more environmentally friendly.

What is great about his is that each bottle will be labelled: 'Carried by sailing ship, a better deal for the planet.' Although the whole process takes up to a week longer than sending by air, it is estimated it will apparently save as much as 4.9oz of carbon per bottle.
