Last mile delivery success for Gnewt

Gnewt by Menzies Distribution has delivered its 500,000th parcel for online retailer ASOS through a trial using a combination of electric vans and human porters.

The partnership sees parcels bulk delivered by Menzies to the Gnewt hub in Bow, in East London, before onward deliveries to customers are made using EV vans and human porters.

Working in this way, the company is now delivering more than 4,000 parcels per day.

Sam Clarke, head of business development at Menzies Distribution, said, “Air pollution is a major issue in London and Gnewt is proud to provide a service which is emission-free at the last mile, reduces congestion and doesn’t compromise on speed and quality of service.”
