Road Transport Media (RTM), the leading media information business serving the CV and road freight sector, has announced a new brand: Freight Carbon Zero, dedicated to providing trusted, independent information about the race to zero emissions.

Freight Carbon Zero joins Motor Transport, Commercial Motor, Truck & Driver and Transport News in RTM’s portfolio of magazines and websites serving the needs of the UK road freight sector.

The new information service consists of a weekly newsletter, website, podcast and webinar series and it launched at the Edinburgh Clean Air Zone event organised by sister title Transport News on 18 October.

“Freight Carbon Zero represents a major step forward for us as a group,” said RTM director Vic Bunby.

“The industry’s journey to carbon zero is going to completely change the face of the sector and there are some big decisions for all those involved. We believe it is essential to provide trusted, independent information to help guide the decision-making process.”

Leading the project is former Commercial Motor editor and current MD of RTM’s parent company, DVV Media International, Andy Salter.

He said: “I have been involved in the commercial vehicle and road freight sector all my working career and it is clear the tectonic plates of the industry are going to shift as the sector decarbonises.

“Freight Carbon Zero will endeavour to give all those involved in the industry a resource to keep up to date with the latest developments.”

Phase one of the project starts with a news and information service. In Q1 2023 a number of additional tools are planned to be released, all aimed at assisting business decision making as companies seek to adapt to a carbon zero future.
