Hermes has teamed up with Gnewt Cargo, London’s leading EV (electric vehicle) to deliver a carbon-natural delivery solution to customers in central London.
Deliveries to central London will be carried out by 44 Renault Kangoo Z.E. vehicles which are 100 per cent electric, produce zero emission and will be powered by sustainably-sourced electricity which does not contribute to the pollution caused by traditional power stations.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson has also praised Hermes for introducing this initiative as this compliments the Mayor’s proposal to introduce an Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in central London from 2020.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “Hermes is setting a fantastic example for London’s logistics companies, all of whom have their part to play in helping to improve London’s air quality. It is an urgent challenge, which affects the health and wellbeing of all Londoners. Under the world’s most ambitious and comprehensive set of measures, we have already taken thousands of the most polluting buses and taxis off the streets, and are planning the world’s first Ultra Low Emission Zone in central London from 2020. By doing their bit, Hermes too is helping to create cleaner, greener, more breathable air for every Londoner.”
