Responding to today’s Budget, Peter Millichap, Director of Marketing at Teletrac Navman, comments:

Road User Levy

“Teletrac Navman fully supports the Government’s commitment to update the existing HGV Road User Levy later this year.

“Haulage firms across the UK have invested in telematics software which allows them to plan their routes more effectively, saving fuel and having a positive impact on the environment.

“Teletrac Navman believes hauliers should be rewarded for taking steps to improve their fleet operations, which will in turn encourage other businesses to do so.

“We look forward to seeing the Government’s proposals in the Spring.”

HGV VED

“The decision to freeze vehicle excise duty for HGVs should also be welcomed, given the continued pressure which businesses face at the pump.”

Road Investment

“Teletrac Navman supports further investment announced in the Budget for the UK’s road network to alleviate congestion on arterial routes and strategic pinch points.

“We encourage the Department for Transport to publish its proposals and bring forward further improvements as soon as possible.”
