Blink Charging UK has installed an EV charging hub at parcel delivery firm Evri’s sorting centre in Rugby.

The charging hub in Warwickshire is a 24-hour operation, with the chargers expected to be in use 60 to 80% of the time.

Each Eve Single Pro line smart charging solution is a lightweight and durable charger, with a user-friendly interface, enabling one vehicle to charge at up to 22kW.

The purpose-built, automated parcel distribution hub in Rugby, is one of the biggest of its kind in the UK and can process more than one million parcels a day.

Installing Blink chargers is part of Evri’s plans to improve charging infrastructure and expand its existing low carbon fleet, which currently consists of 167 electric vans and growing fleet of e-cargo bikes.

New EV chargers are to be installed at Evri’s sites across the UK as part of its goal to reach net-zero emissions by 2035.

Alex Calnan, Managing Director, Blink Charging UK, said, “Blink will leverage our turnkey offering covering design, install and management of a scalable charging network, delivering future ready networks to support Evri’s ambitious plans.

“It is a significant milestone as we help one of the UK’s biggest dedicated parcel delivery companies take one step closer to reaching their goal of net-zero ambitions.”

Pauline Potter, Director of Procurement and Sustainability at Evri, said, “This partnership is an important step for Evri on our journey towards net-zero and we are delighted to be working with the team at Blink Charging UK to install EV charging for our Rugby-based vehicles.

“Together, we can build a more sustainable future for parcel delivery and the communities we serve.”
