Scottish Wholesale Association joins task force to boost zero-emission trucks | News

The Scottish Wholesale Association (SWA) has joined the new Scottish Zero Emission Truck Task Force.

The task force, which will meet for the first time this month, is made up of leaders from the logistics, transportation, manufacturing, energy and finance sectors.

The SWA was invited to join after the success of its ‘Wholesale Industry Decarbonisation’ project.

The group will work to identify and design practical solutions to some of the challenges and opportunities presented by the transition to zero-emission trucks.

It will outline the steps needed to ensure a smooth transition to more sustainable technologies, identifying areas where further development is needed and exploring new business models for members.

The SWA will encourage its members to get involved in the sub-working groups that form within the working group. These subgroups will allow members to have a say in shaping Scotland’s investment in zero-emission vehicles.

“We are working at pace to explore opportunities and find solutions as we begin to plan for the transition to zero emission trucks, so we are honored to be invited by the Scottish Government to serve on the Zero Emission Truck Task Force,” said the CEO of SWA. Colin Smith.

“SWA recently partnered with Volvo Trucks to provide our members with a more in-depth insight into the EV market and infrastructure as part of our ‘Wholesale Sector Decarbonisation’ project and it has been a huge success, with the participation of 19 wholesalers and some of our supplier members.

“There’s a lot to consider as we look for the best way to achieve zero-emission trucks, and it’s our job to help members navigate the myriad of information available and guide them on good way to decarbonize their businesses.”
