Marks and Spencer has joined up with LoCITY champion Dearman in a drive to reduce its COemissions.

The retailer will adopt Dearman’s zero-emission liquid nitrogen-powered engines for chilled deliveries, replacing its current diesel-powered systems.

It is claimed the move could reduce the company’s chilled transport emissions by up to 95 per cent per vehicle.

Anthony Whitehouse, Fleet Engineer at Marks and Spencer, said: “Our latest sustainability plan is ambitious and includes bold new science-based targets to further improve the efficiency of our operations.

“Our chilled delivery trucks have a role to play in that, and we believe Dearman’s transport refrigeration unit could help us meet our emissions targets.”
