With Small and medium sized businesses making up over 99 per cent of the UK business population, they are crucial in the fight against climate change. But SMEs often face barriers when it comes to fleet electrification.


This issue of GreenFleet focuses on helping SMEs with the adoption of electric vehicles. Martin McTague from the Federation of Small Businesses, outlines what they see as the main barriers for SMEs, and Sadie Hodgson from Better Bankside – an organisation that is helping SMEs to decarbonise in London – shares advice on reducing freight emissions.


Elsewhere in the magazine, there's a preview of this July's EV Rally, which will see teams cover 1,400 miles around the country to stress test the electric vehicle charging infrastructure, as well as features on telematics, decarbonising HGVs, the Commercial Vehicle Show, logistics recruitment, and more.
