Fleet Hero Awards 2016 winners announced

The ceremony was held in the London Transport Museum by The Energy Saving Trust.

This year’s winners include Farmdrop, a to-your-door organic supermarket in London, which uses a fleet of electric vans to deliver groceries direct from the producers – be that fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat or dairy. It picked up the Ultra Low Emission Fleet award.

Meanwhile zero tailpipe emission couriers WEGO won the Fleet Hero Innovation Award jointly with InterCity RailFreight for their novel approach to reducing emissions in polluted city centres.

With depots in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Sheffield and London, WEGO’s fleet of electric vehicles and pushbikes helps to minimise air pollution in city centres. The first/last mile courier has partnered with InterCity RailFreight to consolidate deliveries across the country using high speed rail to drastically reduce carbon emissions.
