AF Blakemore has announced the addition of two electric HGVs to its fleet across the Midlands and Wales, serving Spar stores.
Supplied by Hartshorne Group and Volvo Trucks, the zero-emission vehicles boast a range of 185 miles, reducing the company’s carbon footprint and contributing to cleaner air.
Responsible business director, Caoire Blakemore said: “We are thrilled to be at the forefront of the electric vehicle revolution in the convenience retail sector. The addition of these electric HGVs demonstrates our commitment to reducing our environmental impact.
“We believe this is just the beginning of our journey towards becoming a net zero carbon company by 2040 and we are excited to see the positive impact these vehicles will have on our operations and the environment.”
As part of the UK governments electric freight programme, two additional electric HGVs are set to be delivered in March to service AF Blakemore’s Bedford depot.
