Leading retail and high-value logistics provider Clipper, has introduced the latest addition to its fleet in the form of an eco-friendly Electric vehicle.
As an on-going commitment to the Crown Estate, the Electric vehicle operates from Clipper’s Consolidation Centre in Enfield, and delivers the consolidated goods to the retailers on Regent Street. The Electric vehicle offers many benefits to both Clipper, Retailers and many of Regent Street residents; including zero emissions, reduced vehicle noise, energy efficiency and is therefore environmentally friendly.
The Consolidation Centre operation reduces traffic congestion, improves air quality, allows for deliveries to be made to better suit the retailers, and also offers full pre-retail services to make best use of in-store staff. Deliveries are consolidated with those of other retailers from around Regent Street and released from Clipper’s warehouse to arrive at the stores at pre-arranged times. The use of an electric vehicle will provide further environment benefits and many of Clipper’s existing and potential customers are already making good use of the delivery vehicle.
Tony Mannix, managing director at Clipper, said: “Sustainability remains high on our corporate agenda, and the introduction of this latest electric vehicle to our existing fleet, brings us another step closer to achieving our environmental targets. The vehicle further demonstrates Clipper’s commitment to working closely with our retail partners to combat congestion and reduce our environmental impact in one of the world’s busiest retail areas.”
