Transport has been named the number one air pollutant in the UK.
In a bid to lower air pollution within our cities, the UK government has confirmed the end of petrol and diesel car sales by 2030 and supports the introduction of Ultra-Low Emission Zones (ULEZs) and Clean Air Zones (CAZs) in our cities.
There are four different types of Clean Air Zones currently in the UK as stated below:
|A||Buses, coaches, taxis, private hire vehicles|
|B||Buses, coaches, taxis, private hire vehicles, heavy goods vehicles|
|C||Buses, coaches, taxis, private hire vehicles, heavy goods vehicles, vans, minibuses|
|D||Buses, coaches, taxis, private hire vehicles, heavy goods vehicles, vans, minibuses, cars, the local authority has the option to include motorcycles|
Large cities such as London and Birmingham fall under Class D which effects both cars and trucks.
Over one quarter of London is now classed as an Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). This area covers over 3.8 million people who could be charged up to £12.50 a day to enter Central London with a car or and £100 a day for a lorry that does not comply with ULEZ standards.
The emissions standards you must meet to avoid the daily charges are:
|Diesel Vans||Euro 6|
|Petrol Vans||Euro 4|
Clean Air Zones are becoming more common and stricter across the UK. For example, cities such as Oxford have jumped straight to Zero Emission Zones (ZEZs). This means inner-city travel will only be free to electric or hydrogen-powered vehicles, along with plug-in hybrid cars that can travel for at least ten miles on electric power alone. A charge would be imposed on all other vehicles.
The rest of the UK is following suit with Clean Air Zones due to come into play in late 2021 or 2022 in areas such as:
Lead the charge and ensure your fleet keeps moving without expensive charges by switching to electric, zero-emission vehicles.
Carryway has a large range of Melex road-legal electric vehicles which provide a zero-emission solution to inner-city travel. Whether moving people or product, Carryway has an electric vehicle to support your needs.

The Carryway operation was run very professionally and smoothly and to a very high standard. Their knowledge and attention to detail with the complicated planning and logistics involved were exceptional; they were a pleasure to deal with and I can highly recommend their services.
It has been a delight to deal with Carryway, who were our Official Golf Buggy Supplier for The 2019 Solheim Cup. They combine efficient logistics with a professional approach to every aspect of delivery, and the equipment our event benefited from was both functional and stylish. A big thank you to a wonderful Partner.
The Carryway buggy was a lifesaver – and that’s no exaggeration! We were racing in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival, which is a 45 mins support race just before the start for the big 24hr race. Our garages were about 2km away so getting all our gear to/from the pitlane for the race was made so simple because of the buggy! And it would have taken (the team) ages to get there and back! We are enormously proud of our new buggy and the livery made for it. It helps us stand out and helps raise our profile, not to mention being an essential team donkey.”
Thank you Carryway for supplying the buggy for us at Chatsworth this year. All went well and no issues at all – it was a definite improvement on the equipment supplied last year by a different company. Happy to use you again for next year .
Thank you for the excellent customer service that we recently received from Hugh Healy, Carryway Support. Hugh was very thorough and had excellent communications with us regarding our buggy fleet at The Westerwood Resort – nothing was too difficult for him.
Our open day event is a very important day for us, and it makes life much easier to have a relationship with a company (Carryway) that we can rely on each year.
Carryway are always a pleasure to deal with and their drivers are always friendly and professional. It takes a little bit of worry out of my job knowing that I can rely on your good service.
Many thanks to the team, especially Adam who was friendly, helpful and professional.
It is a pleasure to work with Carryway, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.
We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
