  • We're proud to be helping to reduce emissions across the capital, and we’re looking to roll out this same success across further regions.

  • We’ve been working on two projects, which will help to modernise our fleet and the way that we maintain our vehicles.

Changing vehicle regulations, and in a bid to reduce pollution and emissions in our growing fleet, our Canning Town branch has adopted its first fully electric vehicle.

The new vehicle is currently undergoing a rigorous testing phase to compare its viability to traditional models and whether a larger fleet of electric models is the best option for the Group’s future fleet.

Future-proofing our fleet

We’ve been working on two projects, which will help to modernise our fleet and the way that we maintain our vehicles.

The launch of our new app, DRive, will streamline the way that we manage repairs, safety checks and the reporting of any incidents for our Morson vehicles. We have begun the app’s rollout among our commercial drivers. Users should carry out a safety check of their vehicle each day before setting off and log any defects or problems. Checks will be downloaded onto our vehicle Telematics dashboard, allowing the fleet department to quickly support drivers and hire companies in carrying out repairs.

The app also includes an accident section with a step by step guide to responding. Alongside the guide, a direct dial button connects the driver to our insurance company’s accident management section at any time, 24/7, for further help and to report the incident.

Meanwhile, we’ve been improving the efficiency of our fleet in the London area to reduce our environmental impact. All of Morson and Vital’s vehicles now comply with London’s Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) requirements, helping to reduce emissions across the capital, and we’re looking to roll out this same success across further regions.
