FTA says grants will encourage green truck take-up

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) says the Government’s plan to extend its Plug-In Van grant scheme to trucks is a positive step to encourage take-up of green technologies in the logistics sector.

Electrically powered freight vehicles above 3.5 tonnes will now be supported by the scheme, which was launched in 2012, with the Government pledging £4 million towards grants of up to £20,000 per vehicle.

FTA has continually called on the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) to provide much-needed financial support to help operators make the switch to alternative fuels and low carbon technology.
