In Great Britain, the logistics company CEVA Logistics (CEVA Doncaster) saved 54 liters of fuel and avoided 146 kg of carbon emissions for a year thanks to solar panels on two vehicles.

These Trailar solar panels have eliminated the requirement to leave the engine running while operating the tailgate at delivery locations, according to Stephen Morrisroe, Contracts Manager at CEVA Logistics on LinkedIn.

"It may not be the biggest savings, but every little bit helps in the fight against climate change," Morrisroe said.

He said that the company installed solar panels at the beginning of 2021.

Another step in our ongoing commitment to be carbon neutral at CEVA Doncaster.

CEVA's integrated global network includes more than 1,000 facilities in more than 170 countries and 98,000 employees. The company offers clients complex design of the supply chain and the implementation of contract logistics and cargo transportation management.
