Logistics and fleet

We work with logistics companies and fleet operators to optimise their existing energy infrastructure and integrate electric vehicle technology.

As the UK government works towards a zero-emissions car and van fleet by 2050, and a ban on new petrol and diesel cars in 2030, logistics companies and fleet operators are facing increasing pressure to move towards electric vehicles.

Case study

Avoiding unnecessary capital investment

For large goods vehicles, electric vehicles are developing into the most cost effective option, however, vehicle depots do not often have a sufficient electricity capacity to charge multiple vehicles. This can require a large connection upgrade and capital investment – a cost that is not easy to absorb considering that depots are often rented.

Reducing fleet costs

When running fleets of electric vehicles, reliable and resilient charging is essential to avoid risk of vehicle downtime and charging should not affect other on-site equipment and operations.

Logistics companies and fleet operators need to plan their electric vehicle adoption to ensure it is future-proofed and will eventually reduce costs of operating their fleets.

Investing in new energy technologies

On site generation and storage also needs to be considered when implementing electric vehicles, as unplanned interruptions to supply can interrupt business operations and leave an electric fleet in the depot which is a new risk operators have not seen before.

We work with logistics companies and fleet operators to optimise their existing energy infrastructure, integrate electric vehicle technology and deliver commercial outcomes for the benefit of our clients.
