Sustainability: Lyreco Ev Surge

Office products supplier Lyreco has invested £2.3 million in 50 new Ford E-Transit vans, increasing the size of its electric vehicle fleet to 67. The company already had 17 Renault Master Z.E all-electric light goods vehicles.

The Lyreco EV Fleet is being deployed across 13 of the firm’s 24 Regional Distribution Centres, including Dartford, Edinburgh, Manchester and Oxford, as well as at the Lyreco National Distribution Centre in Telford where they will be charged using electricity generated by Lyreco’s own solar panel-powered charging stations.

Lyreco has invested more than £124,000 in charging infrastructure across the Regional Distribution Centre network, with plans to install charging stations at Lyreco’s remaining sites in 2023.

Since 2013, Lyreco has reduced fuel consumption per delivery by over 31% through route optimisation, fleet improvements, driver training and order consolidation. It has pledged to switch completely to zero tailpipe emission vans by 2028 and aims to be carbon neutral by 2030.
