The challenges around electric vans – make your voice heard

A coalition of industry experts and trade bodies recently introduced the ‘Zero Emission Van Plan’ in Parliament, aiming to highlight the critical areas for action in van decarbonisation.

Members are asked to use a simple online tool that allows individuals to quickly send the Van Plan to their local MP to raise awareness, while fleet operators can also complete a very short online poll to strengthen the data the coalition is putting to decision makers.

Brought together by the BVRLA, the coalition involves Logistics UK, Recharge UK, the AFP, and The EV Café. Representatives of the coalition talked to MPs about the sector and the issues that are stopping wider fleet adoption of electric vans. MPs from the top four parties joined to pledge their support for the Van Plan. Attendees also included Transport Secretary Mark Harper, the Chair of the Transport Select Committee, and six members of the shadow cabinet.

All partners have contributed to the content of the Van Plan and will be collaborating on activities through 2024 to share its recommendations with decision makers. Those working in the fleet sector are being encouraged to support the Plan and share its recommendations.
