Logistics and fleet
We work with logistics companies and fleet operators to optimise their existing energy infrastructure and integrate electric vehicle technology.
As the UK government works towards a zero-emissions car and van fleet by 2050, and a ban on new petrol and diesel cars in 2040, logistics companies and fleet operators are facing increasing pressure to move towards electric vehicles.
UPS Smart Electric Urban Logistics project
We implemented new smart electric vehicle charging systems to power UPS’s central London delivery fleet for what is believed to be the first of its kind in the world on this scale.Read more
Avoiding unnecessary capital investment
For large goods vehicles, electric vehicles are developing into the most cost effective option, however, vehicle depots do not often have a sufficient electricity capacity to charge multiple vehicles. This can require a large connection upgrade and capital investment – a cost that is not easy to absorb considering that depots are often rented.
Reducing fleet costs
When running fleets of electric vehicles, reliable and resilient charging is essential to avoid risk of vehicle downtime and charging should not affect other on-site equipment and operations.
Logistics companies and fleet operators need to plan their electric vehicle adoption to ensure it is future-proofed and will eventually reduce costs of operating their fleets.
Investing in new energy technologies
On site generation and storage also needs to be considered when implementing electric vehicles, as unplanned interruptions to supply can interrupt business operations and leave an electric fleet in the depot which is a new risk operators have not seen before.
We work with logistics companies and fleet operators to optimise their existing energy infrastructure, integrate electric vehicle technology and deliver commercial outcomes for the benefit of our clients.
The UK government is working towards all road vehicles being emission-free by 2050 and is planning a ban on new petrol and diesel cars in 2035.
The UK has committed to significantly reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. It has set an ambitious legal target to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
