The work of the Committee

During 2020, the Commercial Vehicle Committee facilitated the reproduction of the LCV/HGV Fair Wear & Tear guide to provide distinction between vehicle categories and ensure that it remains current and fit for purpose.

The committee played a key role in providing input into the future landscape for both LCV and HGV operators as they have focused on a number of key areas, including Covid-19 related impacts, the impending end of the EU Exit transition period, taxation matters, road transport decarbonisation and air quality, particularly with the implementation of Clean Air Zones planned for 2021. 

The BVRLA Industry Outlook Commercial Vehicle Report was excellent. An essential read for all CV operators, providing valuable insights.
