Amazing Eco News: EVRi Orders First Electric HGV

Evri, the parcel delivery company, is taking significant steps towards a sustainable future by ordering its inaugural electric Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV). This aligns with their ambitious goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2035. The move comes on the heels of last month’s announcement regarding the trial of two electric HGVs, which is continuing separately.

In tandem with this, Evri is fortifying its fleet by incorporating an additional 12 bio-compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Iveco S-Way tractor units, bringing the total count of eco-friendly vehicles to 202. These units, which are already in active service, reduce emissions by a commendable 80%.

This month, Evri has also welcomed the arrival of 43 elongated rigid vehicles, which allows for 20 pallets instead of 16. These vehicles, slated for operation by the end of October, will significantly reduce the number of vehicles on the road and reduce overall mileage.

David Landy, the Head of Fleet at Evri, expressed his enthusiasm saying, “We’re excited to get our hands on our first permanent electric HGV.” He emphasised the pride the company takes in investing in sustainable vehicles.
