Wincanton leads the 3PL sector with investment in FUSO eCanter vehicles
Wincanton has today taken delivery of five Daimler Trucks’ FUSO eCanter vehicles, making it the first UK 3PL to introduce production-level electric vehicles to its fleet.

This announcement coincides with Daimler Trucks’ handover of the world’s first all-electric light-duty truck from series production, to a select group of UK customers.

Wincanton will initially deploy the 7.5t vehicles on a trial for inner city logistics, where the challenges of emissions, noise and congestion are greatest. The ambition for the business is for the vehicles to be rolled out as part of its home delivery fleet.

Adrian Colman, CEO, Wincanton explained: “As the largest British Logistics business, we’re delighted to be the first 3PL to introduce these vehicles to our fleet, and bring this game-changing technology to the towns and cities of this country. The environmental challenges of delivery in urban areas, particularly in ‘the last mile’, are significant and growing. As a business we are committed to addressing these issues, to find cost-effective and sustainable solutions for our customers.

“The introduction of production-level electric vehicles to our fleet means we can operate more efficiently, more quietly and without locally emitted CO2. When we’re delivering in towns and cities, we know that this really does matter, right down to the door step. These vehicles are a key part of our innovation roadmap, and our growth plan for the future of urban distribution transport at Wincanton.”

Investment in all electric vehicles at Wincanton is evidence of the company’s ongoing commitment to innovation and sustainability. For further information, visit www.wincanton.co.uk.
