Hermes’ New Eco-fleet Delivers on Sustainability
by Poppy Gaunt
What's Going On Here?
The delivery company expects that using Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) instead of diesel will reduce its fleet’s CO2 emissions by more than 80%.
What Does This Mean?
As well as the CNG vehicles, Hermes is also introducing a fleet of 100% electric vans to deliver within central London.
The rise in popularity of online shopping has seen emissions from delivery companies, such as Hermes, skyrocket. Before the online revolution, the majority of ‘last mile’ deliveries (the final stretch from a distribution centre to a package’s destination) were made to stores.
Why Should We Care?
Low-emissions delivery vehicles are a welcome step towards reducing the impact of our online shopping addiction. Turning the last mile into the green mile!
Online shopping isn’t necessarily the bad guy - you can do a few simple things to make it a much greener habit.
