Wangara based Capral Aluminium recently made its first Fuso eCanter deliveries through freight partner Goldstar Transport. Perth-based Goldstar delivered the Capral Aluminium products to local customer Bull Motor Bodies.
Bull Motor Bodies General Manager, Simon Rawnsley said the company appreciates the opportunity to start receiving Capral Aluminium delivered by an electric truck.
“Sustainability is very much at the forefront at Bull Motor Bodies,” he said.
“A part of the tendering process for large corporate fleets around Australia is that fact that we are working towards net zero as an organisation, so it is important to have things like this as part of our supply chain,” he said.
Capral Aluminium is the largest manufacturer extruder and distributor of aluminium products in Australia and has just introduced a lower-carbon primary aluminium option available across its locally manufactured extruded aluminium products called LocAL.
Capral Aluminium Industrial Solutions State Manager for Western Australia, Nigel Williamson, said the company was pleased to kick start zero emissions deliveries with the Bull Motor Bodies order.
“It is important for the environment. It is in-line with our Capral initiative to reduce emissions and it represents a positive step forward,” he said.
Goldstar Transport Managing Director, Sean Carren, was delighted to help customers along their emission-reduction journeys.
“Goldstar Transport is really excited to have the zero emission Fuso eCanter as part of the fleet and work with companies like Capral who really want to make a difference,” he said.
“We are committed to lead when it comes to zero emission transport and are working towards introducing larger zero emission trucks with our partners at Daimler Trucks, who share our vision.”
Goldstar Transport employs 400 people and has a fleet of more than 150 trucks.
It welcomed the first eCanter to its fleet late last year and is preparing to add large electric trucks to its fleet in the near future.
