LAPV March 2016 has been published

Published:  30 March, 2016

In this latest issue of LAPV we are providing clarification for EU procurement legislation for suppliers and buyers of municipal fleet equipment. We also discuss how Johnston Sweepers is going through and global boost, and a new project has been launched that ‘nudges' drivers into safer behaviour with the use of simple pictograms.

In addition, manufacturers and hire companies are stepping up to bring innovation to the market, while Steve Banner tests two brand new vehicles. At the same time others are bringing innovation in house by installing road gulley waste recycling machinery in their facilities. We also feature the latest industry news, including the merger of Terberg Environment and Ros Roca Environmental.
