Fleet news logo

The Energy Saving Trust, Zemo Partnership and the Department for Transport (DfT) have relaunched and revamped the Freight Portal.

It now provides greater help and support to operators to reduce carbon emissions and fuel bills.

The Freight Portal contains information on vehicle adaptations, training courses, and telematics systems. It also illustrates how freight operators can make their operations more efficient, improve their green credentials, expand the skill set of their drivers and become more economical in the long term.

In addition, the refreshed portal now includes new case studies, worked costings examples, and new tools that provide further free and impartial advice.

Andy Eastlake, managing director of the Zemo Partnership, said: “We and our 200+ members know that the journey to low and zero emissions starts with having good and reliable information, whether about available technologies, policies, cost-effective solutions or learnings from people who have already shown the way.

Tim Anderson, group head of transport at the Energy Saving Trust, added: “The revamped Freight Portal will be an excellent resource for road freight operators of all sizes and will support them in their efforts to reduce emissions from vehicle operations and lower costs.

“The new fuel cost cutter tool can identify potential savings that operators can make by taking action right away, and our new suite of guides, case studies and reports will provide insight and encouragement for businesses within the freight industry, allowing them to move goods in a more sustainable way as we head towards net zero.”

Operators can visit the portal today at: www.thefreightportal.org.
