Green livery for first James Hall & Co electric trailer
Wholesaler has taken delivery of its first fully electric refrigerated trailer which eliminates diesel costs as well as CO2 emissions from the refrigeration unit
The new trailer, which will transport products to SPAR stores across the North of England, has had a special green livery put on to it to mark it out from others in the fleet.
The investment into the new trailer is part of the wholesaler’s continuous replacement programme and the company’s commitment to running a greener fleet.
Ian Farnworth, Fleet Engineering Manager at James Hall & Co. Ltd, said: “It is a first for us as a business and the trailer is already delivering savings when out on the road. We will be monitoring its performance with interest over the coming weeks and months.
“While it is supporting a reduction of costs on diesel as an associated benefit, at the forefront of the decision to invest in the trailer is the benefits it brings to the environment.
“We are also aware of an increasing number of cities and metropolitan areas within our patch that are implementing clean air zones and we are conscious of these factors when making investment decisions.”
