CCF: ‘End to red diesel rebate will hammer hauliers’

Hauliers must be prepared for a ‘major cost increase’ when the government ends the red diesel rebate from refrigeration units in April, according to the Cold Chain Federation (CCF).

New laws to clean up air are being introduced, which involves the removal by HM Revenue & Customs of the rebate for red diesel for most sectors, writes Chris Tindall.

Refrigerated systems manufacturer Hultsteins has already warned that the move could add thousands of pounds of extra cost, per year, per fridge, for all diesel fridge operators.
