LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, 18 May 2023 - The award which was announced at Geotab Connect 2023 was later presented to Milk & More’s CEO, Patrick Müller at the opening of its new Fulfilment Centre in Mitcham, in recognition of the company’s commitment to deploying electric vehicles across its fleet.


 

Patrick Müller, CEO for Milk & More, said: “We are delighted to have won this award in recognition of our 500-strong fleet of electric vehicles. Our electric fleet travels 10 million miles a year – the equivalent to 400 times around the world. By using 500 electric vehicles rather than diesel we are saving 4,335 tonnes of carbon and 1.8m litres of diesel.
 

“Investing in our delivery vehicles is just one of the ways we are helping our customers play their part in looking after the planet. From working with suppliers who care as much about being sustainable as we do, to reducing the amount of plastic we use, we’re proud to say that 80% of our products are sold in Zero Waste packaging that we collect, clean and reuse.”

 

Aside from investing in electric vehicles, Milk & More has become the first company in the UK to use the integrated road speed limiting system provided by LEVL Telematics. This, together with the active use of the Driver Challenge app has seen a 19% increase in the range of the electric fleet, meaning the business can deliver to more customers per round, needs less time to fully charge and therefore saves on electricity too.

 

David Savage - Vice President, UK & Ireland from Geotab, said: “Congratulations to Milk & More – it’s fantastic to see the investment the business has made in its fleet of electric vehicles. Milk & More’s fleet is connected to ‘myGeotab’ and the business is a heavy user of Geotab’s EV Charge Assurance dashboard, to help optimise electric vehicle utilisation and to help ensure EVs are fully charged only when needed. The business also uses the Geotab solution to help improve driver safety and minimise service maintenance and repair costs.”


The company is also improving its vehicle utilisation, by increasing the frequency of product delivery and reducing road lorry mileage by 35% by putting milk and products on the same lorry. As a result, HGV deliveries into Milk & More sites will reduce by over 13,000 per year, cutting down 650,000 miles and reducing our carbon footprint by 280 tonnes.  


Milk & More combines the best of the traditional milkman, with the convenience of online shopping, with customers able to place, check and change their order up to 9pm the day before their next delivery, which Milk & More aims to deliver by 7am. The service is ideal for people who are looking to reduce their environmental footprint, with 97% of all volume sold in packaging that is either reusable, recyclable or compostable.
