25 Mar Levelling the playing field for non UK based HGV’s
Next week will see the introduction of the new time based user charge that will see foreign HGV’s charged for using their vehicles in the UK and thereby contributing in the same way as domestic operators to the cost of maintaining the road network. The charges will be based on vehicle weights and axle configuration. The levy bands will align with UK vehicle excise duty.
It is possible that some operators will look to pass this new cost onto their customers.
