Primark, the value fashion retailer, announced the introduction of a brand-new fleet of 15 Longer Semi Trailers (LSTs) which will help to significantly reduce the environmental impact of the company’s logistics operations in the UK. In addition, they confirmed that in a few weeks they will take delivery of 10 new Iveco Stralis AS440S46T/P NP tractors which will be fueled by LNG.
Each of these new trucks will cover approximately 200,000 kms per year, enable quieter urban deliveries and further reduce the environmental impact of the company’s logistics operations. The vehicles, supplied by the Iveco dealership Guest Trucks Ltd in Peterborough, will have a range of 1,600km.
“We have been working hard for many years to reduce the environmental impact of our logistics operations and we are delighted to take this next step in boosting the sustainability of our transport model. We are proud to bring these new additions into our transport fleet, to help make a more positive impact on the environment,” said Ian Hicks, Head of Transport at Primark.
In 2016, Primark successfully introduced LNG trucks into its Spanish logistics fleet, which are used to distribute merchandise to Primark stores in Madrid and Barcelona, as part of the ongoing commitment to reduce the environmental impact across the business.
