Exciting Transport Developments at SBS
A major focus of the department is to reduce the emissions of the business, aligning with the government’s aim to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2050.
Smith Brothers have acted by beginning to transition away from petrol/diesel to hybrid and fully electric cars, which will significantly decrease the company’s carbon emissions. In September, the business took delivery of eighteen Model 3 Tesla’s, with more to follow. Over the coming months, charging points will be installed across the branch network to accommodate the increase of electric cars.
In total, the business now possesses approximately 200 cars and commercial vehicles, which service our 16 depot network across England, Wales and now Scotland with SBS Glasgow officially opening in September.
Smith Brothers continue to ensure our FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) status is maintained and are even putting the foundations in place to upgrade to Gold membership, having held Silver status for the past 5 years.
