Voltloader shares Welch’s charging network to complete HGV delivery

UK-based electric bulk haulage provider Voltloader has used transport and logistics company Welch Group’s heavy goods vehicle (HGV) charging infrastructure to complete a long-haul delivery, as part of Welch’s push to create a collaborative HGV network across the UK.

Voltloader would not have otherwise been able to complete the critical job with an electric HGV owing to range limitations, the company said, highlighting the importance of collaboration within the industry.

“Charging here at Welch’s marks our first collaborative charge. As an all-electric haulage business, having a shared network of high-powered chargers is crucial. This collaboration, along with our mission of opening more of our own shared charging sites, supports each other and the broader rollout of electric vehicles across the UK,” said Bertie Steggles, Head of Operations at Voltloader. “Currently, public charge points often lack the capacity or suitable locations for heavy goods vehicles, making such partnerships vital for extending range and efficiency and providing a reliable service to our customers.”
