Darren O’Donnell, Logistics Asset Manager at Coca-Cola Enterprises Ltd (CCE), says: “Securing Cenex’s involvement has given us the confidence to introduce new vehicle technology and fuels which will make step-changes in our emissions performance.”
“Our investment in 13 additional trucks and a permanent CBM refueling station at our depot in Enfield is not a token gesture; it’s testament to our confidence in this technology and our commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of our fleet. The environmental benefits of CBM have been clearly proven by the trial and we hope other fleets will be inspired to follow our lead,” he adds.
The new vehicles have been supplied on a six year contract hire agreement by Contract Vehicle Limited, including full repair and maintenance within the Iveco dealer network. They will be based at CCE’s Enfield depot in North London, although will temporarily operate from a strategically located satellite facility in Dagenham this summer. During this period, refueling will be provided on-site via a semi-trailer.
