In my previous blog, I talked about the challenges that fleet managers face when considering the transition to electric vehicles. However, for many organisations with fleets that include heavy duty vehicles, there’s further head scratching to be done.
2030 is the milestone that many public and private sector organisations have circled in their diaries as the year when their vehicle fleet operations will be zero tailpipe emitting – Costain among them.

If not managed effectively, it can impact programme delivery certainty.
