Session four: Future urban delivery vehicles – interactive panel

Following the launch of the government's Transport Decarbonisation Plan in July, we look at how this will affect the shape of future urban delivery vehicles. Which fuels and technology will dominate? What safety advances can we expect? And when will the tipping point come when non-diesel goods vehicles are affordable for all operators, large and small? We bring together Zemo Partnership and a panel of leading vehicle experts to bring the topic to life. You’ll also be able to participate in the discussion by asking questions and taking part in audience polls directly from your mobile device.

Confirmed speakers:
