Hermes has ordered 48 Iveco Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) tractors, making the delivery company one of the biggest CNG lorry fleet operators in the UK.
The vehicles are supplied by Cartwright Fleet Services (CFS). They are in addition to 30 CNG vehicles ordered from CFS in 2019, and are on contract hire with ongoing maintenance for five years.
Hermes saw significant cost savings on those vehicles compared to conventional diesel trucks. Tailpipe emissions including NOx have been reduced by 200,000 kpa.
Lawrence Todd, Director of CFS, commented: “We are proud to support Hermes in making its trunking fleet more environmentally friendly by supplying tractors powered by alternative fuels that significantly reduce fleet emissions.
“The fact that Hermes has come back to Cartwright Fleet Services to source extra CNG powered vehicles is testament to the quality of our service. We are delighted to be working with a forward-looking company such as Hermes.”
Hermes Parcelnet’s National Fleet Manager Mervyn McIntyre commented: “We are proud to have Cartwrights as one of our fleet suppliers and look forward to working with them in the years ahead.”
