Ocado partners with electric bus service Zeelo

Zeelo, the smart bus platform for organisations, has launched the UK’s first fully electric commuter bus service with Ocado

Zeelo provides smart bus services for 110 companies and schools globally, transporting 5,000 people per day, saving over 7,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. They aim to transition all their services into fully electric programmes by 2030.

The electric vehicle programme provides a full 360-degree analysis of the possibilities of businesses providing a fully electric commuting service, including site surveying, charging infrastructure options, routing analysis and vehicle suitability.

This new service, which launched on 29th November, transports employees to and from Ocado Group and Ocado Retail’s head office locations in Hatfield, UK, from nearby towns including St Albans and Welwyn Garden City.

By providing an all-electric bus programme, Zeelo and Ocado hope to save 16 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually whilst also offering another valuable transportation link to the office for staff who are living in areas that may be underserved by public transport.

Mark Potter, Head of Building Services at Ocado Group said, “Ocado is committed to being the UK’s most sustainable grocer. This starts at our head office where we encourage employees to swap their car for a sustainable alternative. The introduction of the electric bus service with Zeelo allows our employees to benefit from a net zero commuting option.

Sam Ryan, CEO of Zeelo said “We’re delighted to be partnering with Ocado and introducing our first electric service to the UK market. This is the start of a decade long journey for us in our goal to operate a fully electric fleet by 2030. Ocado is the perfect partner for our first deployment as we share the same tremendous passion for sustainability.”
