Wilson James deploys first electric vehicle on LCCC fleet
Construction logistics specialist Wilson James has added the first fully electric vehicle to its London fleet, operating out of the London Construction Consolidation Centre (LCCC).
The addition of the Nissan e-NV200 follows the achievement of a fully Euro 6-compliant vehicle fleet at the LCCC, ranging across sizes and weight up to 26 tonnes, just three years after the Euro 6 standard was introduced.
Tony Palombo, managing director, Construction Logistics, said: “To have a fully ULEZ-compliant fleet and now an electric vehicle as well as an electric charging station at our Consolidation Centre in just three years is an achievement and one of which we are proud.”
In addition to the LCCC, Wilson James has pioneered electric vehicles on client sites, most notably at Heathrow Airport in the role of Heathrow Logistic Integrator. The entire fleet of escort vehicles managed by Wilson James at the airport is now electric.
The firm’s work on ensuring a more sustainable fleet has already seen it achieve Gold Standard certification in the voluntary FORS scheme, as well as multiple industry awards and shortlistings.
