For the road freight sector to substantially decarbonise its activities over the next 15 to 20 years, the industry will need to go through a dramatic period of change. That is why Motor Transport in association with Scania (GB) and The Algorithm People has assembled the Decarbonisation P0wer Players, a listing of the most influential people leading moves to cut carbon emissions in the vehicles operated, new operational models or the infrastructure and supply chain required to manage the fleet.

The work to reshape the industry has already started – the truck and van manufacturers are coming to market with new vehicle types, the infrastructure suppliers are building resilience and the service and supply network is growing to support those operators who are embracing and exploring the new, low and zero carbon solutions

It’s these trailblazers of the industry who are celebrated in the new Motor Transport Decarbonisation Power Players. Our industry judges reviewed a nominated long list of candidates and scored them on five weighted criteria covering personal effort, influence, disruption, deliverable and the scale of their activities.

The listing is intended to ensure the professionals involved in the road freight logistic sector are given the plaudits and focus they deserve as the instigators of change.

This activity has been supported by our sponsors Scania GB and The Algorithm People, two organisations at the forefront of the industry’s decarbonisation journey.

No 1 in the inaugural Decarbonisation Power Players was Justin Laney, partner and general manager for central transport at the John Lewis Partnership. The complete rundown of the 25 Power Players will be published in a special supplement with Motor Transport's April 25 issue and you can watch a recording of a webinar launching the listing which includes a presentation by Justin Laney on his decarbonisation strategy.
