The John Lewis partnership: creating a better future for freight

An interview with John Lewis, director general of the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA), is presented. Many Freight Transport Association (FTA) members are customers of BVRLA members. Much of Lewis's time is spent keeping abreast of legislation. He also chairs the Motorists' forum, part of the Independent Commission on Transport. Topics discussed include the UK Department for Transport (DfT) proposal for an 'outreach programme' to encourage companies to adopt best practice, focusing on the light van market, BVRLA's Commercial Vehicle Quality programme, climate change issues, emissions, London congestion charges for trucks and light commercials, fuel duties, and the digital tachograph.
