THE END OF RED DIESEL USE IN THE COLD CHAIN
In the Budget of February 2020, the Government announced its intentions to remove the entitlement to use red diesel for most sectors, including for powering Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs) on vehicles and generators in (sometimes used as backup power sources in cold stores). The new rules come into effect on 1st April 2022.
Cold chain businesses should have already begun preparing for the changes and must now ensure they are fully compliant with the new requirements by the end of March. This note details the key changes and how businesses can check they are ready.
The Cold Chain Federation is on hand to support members through this transition. For any enquiries, please contact Policy Director Tom Southall.
