Electric truck makes FMCG Deliveries in sustainability first from EV Cargo

09 March 2022/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain, Operations Management


Global logistics provider EV Cargo is operating the UK fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry’s first all-electric, zero-emission HGV as part of a significant sustainability partnership with The Park, the independent business based in Bristol, which packages 25% of all wine sold in the UK.

EV Cargo will today hit the road in the all-new DAF CF Electric tractor unit as it leads the way in reducing CO2 emissions associated with supply chain operations.

Its partnership with EV Cargo to use one of the UK’s first electric, zero-emission HGVs will reduce the company’s carbon footprint even further, saving 17,500 litres of diesel per year, 47,347 kg/CO2e and 651 kg/N2O among other air pollutants.

The DAF CF Electric 4×2 tractor unit being operated by The Park and EV Cargo is one of the first zero-emission trucks to enter the market. At the heart of the vehicle is a 210 kW (240 kW peak power) electric motor and the vehicle has a range of up to 250 kilometres (depending on the application, driving circumstances and load). With smart journey planning and interim battery charging during loading and unloading, the vehicle can potentially be used in operation 24/7.

Laurence Drake, Managing Director of DAF Trucks adds: “As a company, we are committed to developing transport solutions for our customers that can help them deliver on their environmental and sustainability objectives. Following the success of our zero-emission electric trucks launched last year, the new CF Electric being operated by The Park and EV Cargo is one of the first zero-emission HGVs to enter the market. Working alongside like-minded partners is driving the transport industry forward.”
