Oxwash adds 100% electric van to its net zero logistics fleet
Sustainability is at the core of everything Oxwash does, so the key to expansion was finding a solution to access customers further afield while remaining net zero.
Oxwash, a sustainable laundry pioneer, has recently acquired a new all electric van. Introduced in the UK last year, the eDeliver 3 is one of the first electric only vans to be sold in the UK.
Having just committed alongside TechZero to become a net zero company by 2023, reducing carbon emissions are core to the company’s operations. To date, it has fulfilled logistics using a fleet of zero emissions e-cargo bikes, but as demand grows, the need for a new method of transport is expected.
With the eDelivery 3, the company can now transport large amounts of textiles and garments across Oxford and surrounding areas. It will also help towards serving corporate clients.
The Maxus eDeliver 3 body has been constructed using lightweight materials including aluminium and composite.
With a battery capacity of 52.5 kWh, the van has a payload of 905 kg allowing for a large number of garments, linen and more to be transported.
Currently, the van is servicing Oxford, Henley-on-Thames, and Wallingford, but the company is building the route out to include Didcot, Milton Park and Bicester.
