There are regular features in the media regarding electric cars but seemingly less interest in trucks and large vehicles.

Welch’s Transport Ltd, is a prominent and forward-thinking family owned and operated freight transport company based in Duxford, Cambridgeshire. For nearly 90 years, the company has operated as a traditional logistics provider, focusing primarily on delivering goods efficiently. However, the company has recognised the pressing need for sustainable practices within the transport and logistics industry. This realisation became a catalyst for their transformation and led to them being one of the first operators of a fully electric, Battery Electric (BEV) 19 tonne rigid, in the UK. In this talk Chris Welch, Commercial & Operations Director at Welch’s will explore the company’s early adoption of sustainable supply chain models, including the introduction of AI into its fleet optimisation. Chris will also explain how this will help create the UK’s first autonomous traffic office and its ongoing efforts to reduce its environmental footprint in one of the most polluting industries in the UK.
