Research into greenhouse gases from diesel-powered auxiliary transport refrigeration units (auxTRUs) has estimated that there are up to 2,100 HGVs in Scotland making a significant contribution to transport-related emissions. The Zemo Partnership said its study, funded by Transport Scotland, showed that these cold chain systems contribute an additional 1-2% greenhouse gas emissions to current official figures reported from all the 37,000 HGV engines operating in the country. The study also showed that the units contribute an additional 5-14% NOx and […]
The government is considering a trial of 25-metre double artics on Britain’s roads as part of a wider multi-modal transport strategy.
