Ocado receives one of its new vehicles

Three LoCITY champions are working together to provide a low-emission solution for online shopping deliveries.

Online supermarket Ocado has taken on a fleet of 29 new tractor units from IVECO, with refuelling infrastructure provided by Gasrec.

The retailer’s order of the IVECO Stralis NP tractor units is the largest order of single-fuel gas-powered trucks of any manufacturer in the UK.

Stuart Skingsley, Head of Fleet at Ocado, said: “The green credentials of this vehicle are clear, and once we had reviewed the fuel costs against our existing diesel fleet it was clear there was also a cost benefit to running these cleaner, quieter vehicles.”
