Electric start to 2020
In UK, Menzies Distribution is hailing an electric start to 2020 as it unveils the expansion of its zero-emissions delivery fleet to more than 120 vehicles. The company already has the UK’s largest all electric vehicle fleet as well as the largest commercial charging infrastructure in the UK through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Gnewt, delivering parcels across London.
The new vans are based in Oban; they are the first electric vehicles to be based in the company’s Scottish network. Three new Nissan electric vans will operate from Oban serving routes across West Scotland. Menzies Distribution’s Gnewt subsidiary has recently delivered its ten millionth parcel emission free, saving 2.3 million kg of CO2 compared to diesel delivery vehicles. (ben)
