INSIGHT

Here you will find links to papers from our speakers and other key reference sources containing useful information around this week’s theme.

Justin Laney, General Manager Fleet, John Lewis Partnership

Scope for optimism in times of change

John Lewis Partnership has made a big commitment for its fleet to become carbon neutral by 2030. Justin shares the challenges he faces to achieve this and why he is optimistic about the future.

Brian Robinson, Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership

The big picture of vehicle decarbonisation

As the UK government’s focus shifts from decarbonising cars to trucks, Brian discusses how the Avoid, Shift Improve framework can help operators in their decision-making.

Alan Hunt, Managing Director, UK and Ireland, Schmitz Cargobull

Only by embracing data will fleets get ahead of the curve

Data and telematics will drive the future of logistics. Trailers are no longer seen as just a simple box on wheels, but the data host providing valuable insight into vehicle performance as a whole.

Tom Southall, Policy Director, Cold Chain Federation

Decarbonising and reducing carbon emissions from temperature-controlled distribution

The key to a successful transition to low or zero emission refrigerated transport is an effective balance of regulation and incentives combined in a clear and dedicated road map for temperature-controlled transport.

Stephen Osman, Head Of Client Solutions EMEA, Procuro Euro Ltd

How will the transport and logistics industry use digital disruption to bring their business forward and help lower carbon emissions?

In his paper Stephen describes the power of digital technologies and the ways in which operators can harness this power in their businesses.

John Harkness, Marketing and Customer Services Manager, Smart Graphics

Sustainable choices for vehicle branding

Whilst the focus for operators is on vehicle efficiency and data, John reminds us that a sustainable choice for livery materials should not be ignored.
