Volta Trucks, the leading manufacturer of fully-electric commercial vehicle has partnered with The Crown Estate and Clipper Logistics to provide greener deliveries to London’s Regent Street retailers.
The Crown Estate’s Regent Street customers, will have access to a single accessible consolidation centre, just outside London’s congestion charge zone, where deliveries are combined and dispatched to and from stores.
With a range of up to 125 miles, the Volta Zero offers zero-emission deliveries between the consolidation centre and stores. Its large 8.6-tonne payload also removes several smaller 3.5-tonne vans from the streets, which helps reduce traffic congestion.
Since 2008, Clipper Logistics have operated the Regent Street delivery scheme, which has been consolidating multiple delivery trips into fewer combined journeys, helping to tackle London’s traffic congestion, improving local air quality, and supporting retailer efficiency.
Confirming the agreement with The Crown Estate and Clipper Logistics, Essa Al-Saleh, Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks, said; “The full-electric Volta Zero is specifically designed for zero-emission urban distribution with exactly The Crown Estate and Clipper Logistics’ use case in mind. And with 8.6-tonnes of payload, it was created to consolidate deliveries and reduce congestion of smaller vehicles on city centre streets. I look forward to seeing The Crown Estate and Clipper Logistics-liveried vehicles operating on the famous streets of London’s West End in only a few months’ time.”
