Distribution firm M&H Carriers is making a £500,000 investment to electrify its Highland delivery fleet.

As part of a drive to cut its carbon footprint, 10 new MAN eTGE e-vans, which have a range of up to 130km per charge, will operate out of the firm’s Inverness depot.

Managing director Fraser MacLean said: “As a distributor in the Highlands with a team that lives and works in Inverness, we’re committed to investing in the future not only of our business but of the environment, so are delighted to be taking the first steps towards electrifying our fleet.

“Our community, and the way our operations impact it, is at the core of everything we do at M&H Carriers.

“As the country’s EV infrastructure continues to improve, we hope to build the electric side of our fleet across our delivery network to further reduce our impact on the environment.

“Initial outlay is often seen as a barrier to electrification for transport businesses – but we really do believe it is worth the investment. The cost of electricity against traditional fuel is far lower, meaning it is not only a great choice for the environment in the short term, but for business in the long run too.

“We firmly believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to contribute to a greener, healthier future and are committed to continually looking for new and innovative ways to reduce our emissions.”
