I've been noticing more and more electric vans silently gliding along the streets in my area doing their daily delivery drops. Today's Logistics Manager reports that the NHS is also joining the electric vehicle revolution, with its logistics provider, NHS Supply Chain, enhancing its fleet of sustainable vehicles across the UK.
Of course, when switching to an electric vehicle fleet you need to pay close attention to where you are going to charge them, what speed of chargers are needed (electric vans will typically need a rapid charger) and whether your existing infrastructure can support this additional requirement - and these are just the headline points. For further analysis of issues which property owners and occupiers should consider in relation to EVCPs, please review our Quick Guide on the topic.
"The new fleet allows for a reduction of 2.1 tonnes of CO2 per vehicle per year, and the engines are HVO ready and can be run on Hydro treated vegetable oil."
