Leading mail, e-commerce, courier and specialist logistics firm The Delivery Group (TDG) has announced a significant six figure investment in low-emission vehicles.
The company, with sites in Central London, Kent, Luton and Warrington in the UK, switched its Central London fleet to electric vehicles in March, with a view to roll out additional electric vehicles across other sites later this year.
The Delivery Group is making the investment in line with the introduction of London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) initiative, which aims to improve air quality standards in the capital by charging those vehicles not complying with tighter exhaust emission standards. The Delivery Group makes thousands of daily deliveries and collections for London-based clients.
Mark Calladine, MD, TDG London and Kent commented, “This is a significant and important investment for our business, our clients want to partner with a supplier that proactively seeks to provide the most sustainable and environmentally efficient service – allowing them to meet their own sustainability targets too.
“The ULEZ initiative has sharpened minds and driven action, but we don’t intend for this to simply be an initiative for the London region. Over time, we are looking to replace all of our fleet with more environmentally efficient models as part of a broader green focus.”
The Delivery Group recently re-branded and announced the opening of a new £2m (US$2.6m) mail and parcel processing warehouse in Aylesford, Kent. The business works in partnership with almost 1,000 clients to create and deliver professional, sustainable solutions, exceptional value and market-leading standards of customer service.
