London already has a number of emission reducing strategies in place and has even talked up the prospect of joining the likes of Paris, Mexico City and Madrid in banning diesel vehicles from the city centre. With this in mind, we’ve taken a look at the current situation and how such changes are likely to affect businesses who manage a fleet of vehicles.
Welcome to our blog!
The core of any business that relies on getting goods from one place to the next, or even their employees out in full force, will rely heavily on their vans or fleet of vehicles. There is no shying away from the huge benefits these vehicles offer you. Not to mention the money they potentially save you on outsourcing this side of things out to someone else. However, not taking care of your fleet can be disastrous. Which is why it is worth remembering some of the major factors that can help ensure that your van fleet stays healthy and running smoothly. In this day and age, there are still thousands of unroadworthy and unmaintained vans and vehicles on the road that are causing more issues for the UK. Because of this, there is now more funding in place set aside from the government for more roadside checks to be done, and for more vans and trucks to be stopped to check. It is now more essential than ever to ensure that your fleet is up to scratch.
