Glasgow transitions to all-electric Tesco home delivery fleet

19 November 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Logistics & Supply Chain, Net-Zero

Thousands of households across Glasgow will now have their shopping delivered by one of 17 new all-electric Tesco delivery vehicles, contributing to a tangible legacy for Glasgow as the host city for COP26. 


This is part of Tesco’s efforts to become net zero in its own operations by 2035 and will see Glasgow become the first city in Scotland to transition to Tesco electric delivery vehicles.


Over the past 18 months, Tesco has significantly grown its home delivery service across Scotland and now delivers to almost 80,000 homes every week. 


Jason Tarry, Tesco UK and ROI CEO said: “As part of our efforts to secure a COP26 legacy for Glasgow, I’m delighted that Glasgow will be the first Scottish city to transition to an all-electric Tesco home delivery fleet. 


“We’re also increasing our use of rail distribution to take more emissions off our roads and helping boost UK’s renewable energy capacity by investing in renewable energy infrastructure, including nine new wind and solar farms across Scotland and throughout the UK.”
