DPD has announced it will be trialling Scandinavian start-up Volta Trucks’ 16-tonne electric delivery vehicle in the New Year. The Volta Zero model will be tested within London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone to support DPD’s micro-depot strategy. Confirming the partnership, Olly Craughan, corporate social responsibility (CSR) general manager at DPD Group UK, said: “The vehicle is an ideal fit for our Urban Logistics strategy; and the fact that it will be the most sustainable commercial vehicle is a fantastic achievement […]
Electric and hydrogen truck manufacturer Tevva is set to scale up production of its trucks after raising £42.5m from new and existing investors which will help fund the fit out of its new London-based production facility.
High levels of interest from fleet operators for zero emission vehicles will drive a “dramatic shift” to electric vans, according to research from the Arval Mobility Observatory.
Delivery giant DPD is aiming to slash its final mile emissions by 89% in 25 cities across the UK by 2025 by using either zero or low-emission vehicles.
