Logistics provider Menzies Distribution has expanded it zero-emissions delivery fleet to 120 new vehicles. The new vans will be based in Oban, Scotland.
According to the company, it 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.
Three new electric vans, Nissan ENV-200s with a Voltia conversion, will operate from Oban serving routes across West Scotland. According to Menzies, the vehicles have a range of approximately 120 miles.
Menzies is also working toward charging its electric vehicles using renewable energy across its entire operation, further cutting the carbon footprint of deliveries.
Adam Smith, group commercial director, Menzies Distribution, said, “We are delighted to introduce our first electric vehicles into our Scottish delivery fleet. We currently have more than 120 electric vehicles delivering parcels, with a particular concentration in London, and we are looking to take the lessons we have learned from running one of the largest all-electric fleets in the UK and roll out across the country.”
