    I am starting a light haulage and really want to be as environmentally aware as I can be . Not just for my fledgling business or my customers but for my grand-children . Any suggestions ? :(:|:|

    Difficult one that - Use a Euro 5 engined vehicle which has lower emissions but also uses MORE fuel to do it ! !

    Along with the type of vehicles you purchase, you may want to look at installing a Telematics solutions which can help to reduce fuel consumption across you fleet of vehicles (by around 15%), coupled with green driving training this should help you to be a greener road haulier.
