The UK’s Royal Mail Group Ltd. (RMG), the owner of one of Europe’s largest fleets, has signed a deal with EDF, the UK’s leading low-carbon energy producer, to deliver electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure. This will support Royal Mail Group’s commitment under the Optimize Prime Project—the world’s largest commercial electric vehicle project.
The three-year framework will see EDF provide charging points, associated maintenance and ancillary items such as signs, bollards and wheel stops. The initial scope for this agreement will see chargers installed on Royal Mail Group sites in the South East of England, with potential for this to increase as required.
Choosing EDF as their framework provider of choice forms part of Royal Mail Group’s commitment to sustainability and reducing their carbon footprint. The adoption of EVs across its business will play a key part in achieving its sustainability goals.
