menzies distribution trials ford e-transit

Menzies Distribution will embark on a 12 month trial of a pre-production, all-electric Ford Transit van.    The test will engage both the Menzies Newstrade and Express operations, providing varied routes, mixed terrain, different speeds and, at times, vast mileage ranges, all of which have a bearing on battery life. Data obtained from the test will inform blueprints for all Menzies sites and their EV resources.   The Ford E-Transit being tested is the L3 H3 425 GVM model, featuring a 68kWh battery and 135 KW (184PS) motor. Its estimated range is up to 154-183 miles (WLTP). Ford Pro E-Telematics help to enhance driver performance with in-vehicle coaching, while new auto stop-start technology reduces wear on brakes. Menzies presently has around 90 charging locations in its network, making it one of the UK’s largest commercial EV charging infrastructures.   Commenting on the E-Transit trial, Adam Purshall, Fleet and Procurement Director, said: “We are excited to have this opportunity to push the E-Transit and our infrastructure as hard as we can to fully understand the limitations of both and work with the manufacturer to deliver the future of EV technology. The transport department is ready to embrace this trial with open arms, and the buy-in of drivers and staff is key to its success.”

‘Fleet’ is one of the three main pillars within the Menzies Distribution Sustainability pledge, alongside ‘energy consumption’ and ‘reuse and recycling’ for the business and its partners. This year Menzies announced plans to become Net Zero for Scope 1 and 2 emissions by no later than 2035 – 15 years ahead of the target date set under the Paris Agreement and in UK legislation.
