Nestlé, York, Electric Shunter

Share this post:

Compact Electric Vehicles is excited to announce that Nestlé UK has launched a trial of an Electric Shunter at its distribution centre in York. This move is part of Nestlé's efforts to reach net zero emissions by 2050, and is a testament to the company's commitment to sustainability. The Electric Shunter, which will be used to move trailers around the site, is expected to significantly reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions compared to the diesel-powered shunter it is replacing.

As a leading UK Commercial Electric Vehicle Retailer, Compact Electric Vehicles is proud to see companies like Nestlé making the switch to electric transportation. The use of electric shunters not only helps to reduce emissions, but also has the potential to improve the efficiency of supply chains and lower operating costs for businesses. We believe that the transition to electric transportation is crucial for achieving a sustainable future, and we are excited to see Nestlé leading the way with this trial.

Overall, we are thrilled to see Nestlé's trial of the electric shunter at its York distribution centre and believe it is a positive step towards a more sustainable future. We hope that other businesses will follow Nestlé's lead and consider incorporating electric transportation into their operations.

Nestle Electric Shunter

So why has Nestlé trialled an Electric Shunter from Compact Electric Vehicles?

Nestlé is a multinational food and beverage company and they are one of the largest companies in the world, with operations in 191 countries and over 2,000 brands. Nestlé's products include a wide range of popular food and beverage items, such as coffee, baby food, bottled water, ice cream, and more.

Currently, Nestlé is a user of standard diesel shunters but is now on a journey to reduce their carbon footprint by switching to fully electric. This is a big step forward for us and it's great to be involved in Nestlé's Net Zero journey!

As a large company with a global supply chain, Nestlé's transportation and logistics operations play a significant role in its overall environmental impact. In an effort to reduce its carbon emissions and become more sustainable, Nestlé has committed to reaching net zero emissions by 2050. One way that the company is working towards this goal is by transitioning to electric transportation for certain operations, including the use of Electric Shunters.
