AFP chair Paul Hollick says that a lack of charging infrastructure is hindering EV adoption

The Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) says that the lack of a national strategy for kerbside charging infrastructure in the UK is the biggest barrier to electric vehicle (EV) adoption by businesses. Currently, 75% of the cost of kerbside charging installation, which costs around £2,500 per unit, is met by a national fund paid and the remaining 25% is covered by local authorities.  AFP chair Paul Hollick said, “We have national fleets who are AFP members and want to go 100% EV as soon as possible. The stumbling block they face is that... Read full article

Increased fuel duty has been cancelled in the budget

Increased fuel duty has been cancelled in the budget

Increased fuel duty, due to take effect next month (April), has been cancelled by Chancellor Rishi Sunak in the Budget 2021.  The Treasury says this could be the last time fleets can expect a freeze in fuel duty and that future rates will be decided taking into consideration the UK’s commitment to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. The one-year freeze in fuel duty from 2021-22 will cost the Treasury £795m, rising to £885m the year after (2022-23), £910m in 2023-24, £925m in 2024-25 and £945m in 2025-26.  There was no...

Fleets are ‘better prepared’ for lockdown 3.0

Fleets are ‘better prepared’ for lockdown 3.0

Chair of the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) Paul Hollick has commented on the fleet industry’s position as we navigate lockdown 3.0. Paul Hollick says that fleet professionals, particularly those responsible for the running of essential services such as the NHS, learned new skills to cope with the pandemic during the UK’s first lockdown last year (2020), which has enabled them to better handle the demands of this most recent lockdown.  He said, “Fleet managers are now experienced in this area and almost have a ‘lockdown...

Navigating the classification of journeys

Navigating the classification of journeys

It has been widely reported by fleet managers and the prestigious organisation, the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP), that the classification of journeys by employees is causing a headache.    This has arisen in light of the push for people to work from home and the increase in the number of people who are perceiving their place of work as being home.  The AFP chairman Paul Hollick recently said, “If someone is working from home rather than the office, then it raises the question of which is actually their place of work. This is... Read full article
