UK wine retailer Majestic is accelerating its fleet decarbonisation with the rollout of 35 new Citroen e-Berlingo and e-Dispatch electric vans by next March.
According to the company, the vehicles will take out more than 700,000 diesel-powered road miles every year, reducing its CO2 emissions by up to 170,000 kg from March next year.
This is more than double the amount of eLCVs the firm had previously hoped to acquire in 2023/24, as it aims to make its whole fleet of 216 vans electric by 2030.
Majestic’s vans play a vital role in delivering orders for its online customers and B2B portfolio of more than 3,000 on-trade venues across the UK.
All 207 Majestic stores have their own dedicated delivery van, with 60 per cent of all orders placed through its website now dispatched from its shop network.
