Harmful Gases and emissions

The Uk has 152 billion tonnes of goods moved per annum, that is 79% of all goods. International Freight into the uk is 5.6 billion tonnes, which makes a contribution of approximately  £12 billion into our economy. We have 68,983 licenced operators based in the UK, which equates to 601,468 goods vehicles (this is not including the massive van fleet which are not required to be unregistered through the DVSA.  

We then have a bus fleet of approimatelyx 95,000 vehicles, in addition to all the cars, motor bikes and all other types of vehicle( including plant, agriculture, heating fuel and shipping).

I have attended endless amounts of Zoom or Teams meetings during lockdown, with reports of harmful emissions down by up to 70% in big cities all over the world. Quite rightly the mantra has been  let’s work hard to keep the emissions down.

The Plan!

Electric cars, cycles, scooters, walk, use local transport and cycle.  Then we must stop using fossil fuel driven cars vans and large vehicles now or at least by 2030 (or at the very latest 2050). 

Raise taxes, install cycle lanes and pathways. Stop HGV’s going through cities and large towns.

This is a great plan but doomed to fail; we just simply cannot replace all of the above.

There is not enough production of replacement vehicles, there are ongoing issues with power connections , planning is being refused by councils who set the agenda.

Fire risk-  what do we do with the batteries that have 8 – 10-year life? 

Given the current low range of electric vehicles (around 250 miles on a good clear run) and the distance our haulage vehicles travel, with costs being extremely tight for operators’ and companies with low margins, coupled with the COVID-19 downturn in business and low investment.. Therefore, unlikely that hauliers, logistics and distribution companies are going to be able to afford a change from fossil fuels to other solutions quickly enough to satisfy the projections of 2030 – 2050
