Established Courier Exchange member Churchill Express Ltd – one of London’s largest independent courier companies, has launched ‘Green Courier’ a new environmentally friendly, carbon balanced courier service with a fleet of low and zero emission vehicles.
Green Courier is the first courier company in the UK to use the Mia U for commercial use. The vehicles produced by Mia Electrics are 95% recyclable and produce zero-emissions.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “Real progress has been made in improving London’s air quality in recent years and our capital’s businesses have a hugely important role to play in helping us reduce emissions even further. Green Courier, with its low and zero emission delivery vehicles, is doing exactly that and I wish them every success for the future.”
Commenting on the launch of the Green Courier service, co-founder Damian Milson, said: “We’re extremely proud to be launching a new level of sustainable solutions to the same day, next day and multi-drop despatch business.”
“It has taken a great deal of planning and investment to bring this ambitious project from concept to launch,” he added. “Developments in electric vehicle performance, combined with working with the World Land Trust, provides the perfect opportunity to introduce a comprehensive environmentally friendly service in a market that has traditionally had a high carbon output.”
