London courier launches zero emission Eco Hub following "significant" investment
A London courier company has announced that it is launching a new zero emission ‘eco hub’ in Holborn.
Absolutely, which was established in 1865, has today launched its Eco Hub, a zero emission focused courier depot in Holborn, London.
The opening comes following “significant” investment from Absolutely in aiming to improve air quality across the capital.
The new site is Absolutely’s fourth London location, and provides an additional 5,000 sq ft of space.
The site will also allow Absolutely to offer a temperature controlled and ambient fulfilment solution using its expanding fleet of e-vehicles.
Stuart Godman, CEO of Absolutely, said: “As a business we’re in great shape, and despite the recent difficulties of the pandemic, the launch of our Eco Hub is something we’ve been planning for some time to ensure our business is set up for long-term success; supporting our valued customers, as well as the capital’s zero emissions target.
“At a time when our customers across London are passionate about protecting the environment, whilst having to adapt their businesses and accelerate their online presence, we are committed to supporting their growth and providing them with improved service options to help them flourish in the years ahead. Our new Eco Hub is just the start of this commitment.
“I’m determined that as a business we will never standstill and will keep pushing boundaries.
“Our Eco Hub and expanding fleet of extra-large electric cargo bikes will enable Absolutely to continue delivering an excellent standard of service - giving our customers more environmentally focused options for fulfilment, storage and distribution - whilst adhering to the latest legislations and building on our ambition to be a true ambassador for carbon neutrality.”
