Bedeo has increased its footprint with Ocado Retail, assisting the company with its transition to sustainable last-mile delivery by supplying 100% electric refrigerated vans using its technology.
Ocado first released 15 electric vans powered by Bedeo in 2019. Further vehicles going into service during the course of this year will increase its footprint in Ocado’s fleet to 32 electric vans by the end of 2021.
Operating from the Park Royal Depot, the vehicles deliver groceries every day into West and South West London.
Bedeo’s founder and CEO, Osman Boyner, said: "Not only does our technology offer an immediate and direct solution to improving the air quality of our cities, it also allows our customers to make reductions to their last mile delivery costs.
“The adoption of our technology should therefore accelerate – this is how we will make a meaningful move towards a zero-emission environment.”
Developed in its own technology centres and manufactured and installed in its own production factory, Bedeo’s electric powertrains are used by Ocado, DPD, DHL, TNT/FedEx and Migros.
Meanwhile, Stellantis has selected Bedeo to exclusively provide electric drivetrains for the large van range of its Peugeot, Citroen, Opel and Vauxhall brands.
