Mazda and XPO Logistics work to reduce UK distribution emissions

Mazda is working to reduce CO2 emissions from its UK parts distribution in partnership with XPO Logistics.

In the UK and Ireland, the XPO distribution fleet has 200 trucks running on hydrotreated vegetable Oil (HVO).

HVO is a renewable fuel produced from vegetable oil, tallow or used cooking oil.

It is odourless, non-toxic, and made from 100% renewable waste. HVO-powered trucks emit up to 90% less CO2 than their traditional diesel counterparts.

XPO currently uses this biofuel across 9% of its total fleet, and it has installed a tank for HVO at its Motherwell site to make it easier to use this biofuel in more significant numbers of its vehicles.

XPO provides logistics services for around 65% of the UK’s automotive aftermarket industry.

Dan Myers, managing director – UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, said the business has built a long-term partnership with Mazda over the years.

He said: “When faced with such an ambitious objective as decarbonising supply chains, both organisations understood that working together was the only way to make meaningful progress.

“That’s why we’re working as a single, focused team to eliminate CO2 from Mazda’s UK logistics operations.”
