Knowles offers fully electric transport solutions to customers from 7.5 tonnes to 42 tonnes GVW. In heavy-duty applications, Knowles is able to provide zero-emission solutions for a vehicle payload of 25 tonnes.
As one of the first 3PLs in the sector to trial and subsequently acquire an electric fleet, Knowles has unrivalled experience in implementing electric vehicles to suit the requirements of our customers, taking into account factors such as range, charging, and payload. We have invested significantly in our charging infrastructure, enabling us to charge our electric vehicles within 2 hours using our 150kWh superchargers. We are also able to provide real-world advice regarding customers implementing their own charging infrastructure at their sites.
Depending on the scale of our customers' operations, it is not uncommon for carbon savings to exceed 1 million kg CO2e per annum through the implementation of an electric solution with Knowles.
Knowles is able to offer an HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) solution to customers, which can save up to 90% of carbon emissions and is compatible with our diesel fleet. Given our experience with alternative fuels, Knowles can cost-effectively procure HVO in the right specification to deliver maximum value and environmental benefits to our customers.
We are also able to offer a hybrid solution between Electric and HVO, allowing for shorter and medium-distance deliveries to be undertaken with electric vehicles, while further distances are covered using HVO. This typically enables a saving of over 95% in carbon emissions per annum.
