The UK is experiencing change at a rapid pace with the introduction of increased legislation to help make cities cleaner, quieter and safer for the millions who work and live in them. We work with stakeholders, navigating through these changes and plan for the future with our customers offering urban transport solutions, tailored for individual applications.
We’re all part of a transport ecosystem, and just as in any successful system, everyone has a very important role to play. When our new truck generation was launched in 2016, our aim was clear, ‘Driving the shift towards sustainable transport’, and we’re putting those words into action. Safety and sustainability are two of our top priorities; this is reflected in our newly developed product range for urban transport. Our range of cabs on show offer enhanced safety features with, amongst others we will be exhibiting, the L-cab achieving the maximum five star Direct Vision standard. The future of urban transport can’t be solved with just one solution, therefore we offer a range of alternatively fuelled vehicles.
We look forward to welcoming you to our stand to show you around our range of urban transport solutions and discuss with you how they can be tailored to your business. Enjoy the show!
The official seminar sponsor for the Expo, Calor will be on stand S01, promoting its sustainable fuels for freight operators.
The organisation will showcase how its competitively-priced fuel solutions – including liquefied natural gas (LNG) and new BioLPG – provide a low-carbon and cleaner option for hauliers operating in clean air and low emission zones. Many manufacturers, including Volvo Trucks, Iveco and Scania, are now offering gas trucks in the UK as part of their fleet ranges.
Offering economical and efficient alternatives to conventional fuels, Calor LNG and BioLPG deliver sustainable solutions to hauliers, without impacting on vehicles’ performance.
The objective of the Noise Abatement Society is to raise awareness of, and find solutions to, noise pollution and pollutants related to solving noise issues, for example light disturbance and air pollution. Our work helps to relieve the physical and mental distress and ill health which noise and related pollutants cause and which profoundly affect public health, productivity, the quality of human and wildlife. Now celebrating its 50th year, the Society was established in 1959 by John Connell OBE who successfully lobbied the Noise Abatement Act through Parliament in 1960, establishing noise as a statutory nuisance for the first time in the UK.
We're building an all electric truck specifically to be used in and around cities and urban areas – no tailpipe emissions; no engine noise. And without a huge diesel engine we're also able to completely re-design the cab using a driver-centric approach to make the vehicle safer for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. The driver seat has literally been placed in the centre and the cab lowered to optimize the driver’s field of view and to allow easy access on both sides with sliding doors. In short, we're ripping up the design book on urban trucks and starting again.
