There were some great new products and services on show at Freight in the City Expo 2018. 

Making it's first ever UK appearance, the Renault Trucks MasterZE L2H2 panel van proved quite the talking point for urban operators. Volvo trucks used the Expo as the UK launchpad for its new FE-Electric, designed for zero-emission refuse collection and urban distribution duties. Scania showcased its latest urban truck range including the new L-series that features a high level of visibility from its cab and achieves the maximum five-star rating under London's interim Direct Vision standard.

With a great turning circle and a small footprint, our Goupil Range are bang on the money for city use. Freight in the City was the obvious place to take them. It’s a great place to meet with the industry and our customers.
