M&H Carriers electrifies distribution fleet

Fraser MacLean, managing director at M&H Carriers, with the new Highland electric delivery fleet

Scottish distribution firm, M&H Carriers, has begun to electrify its Highland delivery fleet.

The distribution firm has invested £500,000 to introduce 10 new MAN eTGE e-vans to its fleet operating out of its Inverness depot, it said.

The move comes as the company looks for new ways to reduce its carbon footprint as it makes daily deliveries in the city of Inverness.

Fraser MacLean, managing director at M&H Carriers, said: “As the country’s EV infrastructure continues to improve, we hope to build the electric side of our fleet across our delivery network to further reduce our impact on the environment.

“Initial outlay is often seen as a barrier to electrification for transport businesses – but we really do believe it is worth the investment.

“The cost of electricity against traditional fuel is far lower, meaning it is not only a great choice for the environment in the short term, but for business in the long run too.”

Each MAN eTGC e-van provides a range of up to 130km per charge.

With no compromise on delivery capacity, the vans produce virtually no noise and are emission free – making them an ideal transport solution for the delivery network, said M&H Carriers.

M&H Carriers is a distributor and haulier in the north of Scotland, delivering parcels, freight, pallets and 2-man products across the country.
