Portsmouth Clean Air Zone Webinar

In partnership with Scania and Portsmouth City Council


Do your HGVs, buses or coaches operate in the Portsmouth area? If so, then you’ll need to know how the city’s pending Clean Air Zone may affect your operation when it comes into force at the end of this month.

Freight in the City has teamed up with Scania and Portsmouth City Council to bring you an informative webinar on the Clean Air Zone details, support packages available and expert advice on how to make your fleet more sustainable - both today and in the future.

Free to attend, this online event will be your opportunity to hear directly from the council about its plans and ask any essential questions to help your fleet remain compliant.
