Summary:

This event contributes to the COP26 headline outcome: the global transition to zero-emission road transport has reached a tipping point. It brings together experts from the international road freight sector, including government, policy, vehicle manufacturers and goods retailers, to build a collective understanding of the policies and best practice needed to overcome the barriers to enable an efficient transition to zero-emission vehicles in road freight.

The event encourages a global audience to embrace the benefits of zero-emission commercial vehicles and highlights the need for increased diversity within the road freight sector; our all-female panel challenges the image of freight as a male-dominated industry and encourages more women to join the sector.
