Lyreco, a supplier of products and services for the workplace, has invested £2.3 million in 50 new Ford E-Transit vans, increasing the size of its fleet of electric vehicles to 67. The company already had 17 all-electric Renault Master ZE vans .

The Lyreco EV Fleet is based at 13 of the firm’s 24 regional distribution centres, including Dartford, Edinburgh, Manchester and Oxford, as well as Lyreco’s National Distribution Center in Telford, where they will be charged using electricity generated from the company’s own solar Lyreco panel – powered charging stations.

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

Since 2013, Lyreco has reduced delivery fuel consumption by over 31% through route optimization, fleet improvements, driver training and order consolidation. The company is committed to switching to zero tailpipe emissions vans by 2028 and aims to be completely carbon neutral by 2030.
