Online electricals retailer AO has taken delivery of 10 new CNG-powered Iveco S-Way NP trucks from Fraikin as it looks to reduce its carbon footprint.

The 4x2 tractor units are on a five-year, full-service contract hire agreement and are the first in AO’s 129-strong fleet to run on natural gas.

David Ashwell, AO Logistics MD, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome the new CNG vehicles into our UK trunking fleet and continue our successful partnership with Fraikin.

“At AO Logistics, we are always looking at ways to improve our operation in terms of both sustainability and fuel efficiency – trialling these new Iveco tractor units is a fantastic step towards reducing our impact on the environment.”

The new vehicles will operate with single and double deck trailers, carrying appliances between AO’s depots in Crewe and North London. They are expected to notch up 125,000 miles a year.
