Hireco helping micro mobility revolution
Hireco is working with the Green Charging Company as the micro mobility revolution spreads throughout Britain.
The Green Charging Company has secured contracts with the major providers of e-scooters and e-bikes to TfL (Transport for London) and Bristol, Bath and Southampton Councils to provide a 24/7 operation to collect, charge and deploy e-scooters and e-bicycles.
Initially Hireco has provided the Green Charging Company with five electric Maxus e Deliver 3 vans and Hireco is in discussions to provide further vehicles.
The new Maxus van which is built in China, has a capacity of 4.8 cubic metres and a city range of 213 miles. The UK is the first export market for the Maxus e Deliver 3 van.
Gary White, Director Overlander/Hireco EV and specialist vehicles, said: “We are proud to be partnering with the Green Charging Company in a sector which is seeing explosive growth.
“Moving with the times as the transport industry evolves is critical, therefore partnering with and supporting smaller owned operator businesses like the Green Charging Company, as well as multinationals is critical.”
White said Hireco had made a big investment and commitment to electric vehicles. He added: We intend to operate at the forefront of technology innovation.”
The vans are another initiative from Hireco’s Light Commercial Vehicle division which combines years of experience and knowledge in vehicle hire to provide a ’Total Transport Solutions’ approach bespoke to each customer’s requirement.
Hireco is the biggest buyer of new fleet vehicles in the UK. It currently operates over 7000 assets around the UK and Ireland; 70 percent of which are supplied to the country’s top 100 transport companies, often on bespoke contracts of three to ten years.
One of the company’s trademarks is the age of its fleet, which is one of, if not the youngest in the business.
