Small hauliers at risk of being caught out by Euro-6 deadline

  • 08 January 2013
  • By Chris Druce

Smaller hauliers risk getting caught out by the introduction of the Euro-6 emissions standard, which come into force in less than a year’s time, according to exclusive CM research. 

The research, taken from UK Commercial Vehicle Operator Report, reveals that almost half (46%) of smaller haulage fleets (5 to 25 vehicles) have given no thought to the imposition of Euro-6 from January 2014.

This is in stark contrast to medium (26-50) and larger (51+) players, where almost three-quarters and more than two-thirds respectively, have agreed on a Euro-6  policy.

Overall, 39% of operators said Euro-6 would not affect their vehicle purchasing strategy. However, 20%, crucially the larger players that will be buying significant volumes of Euro-5 equipped vehicles, intend to pull forward their buying cycles to cocoon themselves from the need to purchase the more expensive Euro-6 vehicles.
