XPO leads the way with HVO and electric-powered vehicles

HVO and electric-powered vehicle trials were initially implemented across test routes comprising nearly 3,000 miles in the UK and Ireland, with emissions reduced by over 4,000 kgCO2e. Expanding the uptake of emission solutions in the managed transport sector aligns with XPO’s broader decarbonisation strategy, which includes increasing the use of alternative fuels. At the same time, newer low and zero-emission vehicles are entering the market.

A leap forward

Paul Hayes, XPO’s Director of Asset Light Solutions, said: “Sustainability is an important strategic pillar for all our customers, and together, we are exploring options to accelerate the supply chain’s decarbonisation. This unique deployment and implementation of alternative fuel technologies in our 4PL operation is a leap forward for our customers on their sustainability journey.”

Dan Myers, managing director – UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics added: “It’s hugely satisfying to see the expansion of alternative fuels as we continue our journey as a leader in sustainability.”
