Whistl begin electric vehicle rollout

Post by POSTMAN »

Whistl, the UK’s leading logistics specialists in e-fulfilment, mail, and parcels has begun the rollout of electric vehicles within its fleet following a strategic review of its future transport needs.

The company has established a strategy to transition its van fleet to electric power, whilst practically meeting operational needs, cost-effectively.

The strategy covers both rollouts of electric vehicle charging infrastructure across Whistl’s current 22 sites and the procurement of an electric fleet.

Whistl will initially deploy Maxus eDeliver 9 electric vehicles covering customers in the Bristol area with four vehicles and five for its Parcelhub brand, which offers a more regionalised approach with onsite local collections and consolidated volumes.

The necessary charging infrastructure is being developed working with EO Charging following a comprehensive review of the marketplace.

In addition to the van fleet, Whistl is actively encouraging employees with a company car to choose a fully electric or hybrid option and has installed charging options at its Head Office and across its estate. The company expects the infrastructure rollout to be complete this year.

As new electric vehicles come into the market, Whistl will assess their suitability to replace current ICE fleet vehicles. It recently announced its fleet renewal, including Peugeot Boxer 435 Vans which are on leases that enable Whistl to swap them with electric-powered replacements when they become available.

I am pleased that we can begin rolling out electric vehicles in Bristol and for our Parcelhub brand. We want to transition our fleet as quickly as possible to non-ICE and are actively trying to find ways to overcome the size and weight restraints of current electric vehicles versus our operational requirements.

It’s great that we will see our new Whistl and Parcelhub electric vehicles on the streets making a contribution to lowering our overall emissions and improving the quality of the environment in the areas

It's good to get these types of threads, the ridiculous my manager said bollox so we can reassure ourselves that while the world is falling apart, Royal Mail managers are still being the low life ***** they have always been.

A manager does not have to count such absences (Covid) towards an attendance review, so my advice would be that employees who remain absent in order to protect the health of their colleagues continue to raise this as mitigation as part of the attendance procedure.

The daily grind of having to argue your case with an intellectual pigmy of a line manager is physically and emotionally draining.

team - tell the truth - be respectful - be open to other points of view - if you are doing these three things, post post post post…
