Glory glory: 3PL uses electric trucks for deliveries to Man Utd
02 January 2020
Wincanton is operating an all-electric Daimler FUSO eCanter as part of its work with sportswear giant adidas.
The 7.5 tonne vehicle is based at the Wincanton-operated adidas distribution centre in Trafford Park, Manchester. It is used to make regular deliveries throughout the city and surrounding area.
Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium and Carrington training ground are among its regular destinations, to which it transports kits and equipment for the team’s players, as well as merchandise for sale at the club’s Megastore.
The vehicle can cover close to 120 miles on a single charge and carry 4.5 tonnes of cargo
This latest addition to its fleet is further evidence of Wincanton’s commitment to alternative fuels. In March 2018, it became the first UK 3PL to introduce production-level electric vehicles to its fleet, with five FUSO eCanters brought in for inner-city deliveries in London.
