Majestic accelerates roadmap to all-electric van fleet
Majestic is accelerating plans to switch its entire fleet of delivery vans from diesel to fully electric.
As part of its sustainability drive, the wine retailer will roll out 35 new Citroen eBerlingo and eDispatch electric vans before the end of March, with half of those expected to hit the road before Christmas.
The retailer is working towards having all 216 of its vans fully electric by 2030, which it says will save five million diesel-powered miles every year.
Majestic’s vans play a crucial role in delivering orders for its online customers and growing B2B portfolio of more than 3,000 on-trade venues across the UK. Each of Majestic’s 207 stores has its own dedicated delivery van, with 60% of all orders placed through its website now dispatched from its network of shops.
Majestic chief executive John Colley said: “Majestic’s fleet of vans is among the busiest in retail, so we are acutely conscious of their carbon footprint and the need to go greener. As a business, we are determined to grow in an environmentally responsible manner and the transformation of our fleet to fully electric vehicles will slash our carbon emissions by more than 1.2 million kilograms every year.”
