HVO replaces diesel in delivery company's shunters

Yodel shunter

Fuel and lubricant distributor Certas Energy has partnered with Yodel to roll out the use of Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) for the parcel carrier’s shunter fleet.

HVO is a drop-in diesel alternative manufactured from 100% renewable and sustainable waste that can reduce Co2 emissions by up to 90%.

It provides a cleaner way to fuel commercial fleets and offers an instant reduction of CO2 emissions. It also alleviates the need for changes to infrastructure and machinery.

The switch to HVO will include Yodel’s shunter vehicles across three Yodel sorting centres with plans for a broader roll out across its fleet in the future.

Jamie Hodges, head of business development at Certas Energy, commented: “As an alternative to diesel, HVO is becoming a popular transition fuel for businesses operating commercial fleets and looking to reduce their carbon footprint responsibly and efficiently.” 

And Yodel’s COO, Carl Moore, commented: “Innovation and looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment is, and continues to be, a top priority for us. By partnering with Certas Energy to roll out HVO across our shunter fleets, we will be able to reduce our CO2 emissions instantly with no disruption to our services.”

“We continue to look for new ways of reducing our carbon footprint, and we’re looking forward to improving our practices further.”
