Selco continues its journey to a more sustainable future by adding natural gas vehicles to its fleet for the first time. The purchase includes four IVECO NGVs for use in the Bristol area. Three of the vehicles will be Stralis 26-tons trucks with the other an IVECO Daily.
“This is an exciting development for us and one which reaffirms our commitment to our sustainability targets,” said Richard Evans, head of transport operations at Selco. “We have a long-term strategy to reduce our carbon footprint in the communities in which we operate and this is a step on the road towards achieving that.”
The new CNG vehicles will be used by two branches in Bristol. “A consultation is currently ongoing with regards the introduction of a Clean Air Zone in Bristol and, with two of our 69 branches in the city, it’s an ideal place for us to trial this technology,” commented Evans.
The vehicles have been secured from Guest Truck and Van, the largest IVECO dealer in the UK with 13 different locations. “We are delighted to work with Selco to boost the sustainability of its fleet. Environmentally friendly vehicles are becoming more and more popular so it’s exciting for us to see businesses that we have worked with for a long time invest in the future,” said Robert Spittle, managing director at Guest Truck and Van.
