Our mission

Driving change for a greener future

FSEW aims to be carbon net zero operationally by 2025. Our priority is changing the way we transport freight and taking action to reduce carbon emissions.

Acting first
Going electric – We are proud to be the first to launch electric vehicles into the UK’s freight delivery sector. The 37-tonne, 4x 2 class 1 trucks, run on electricity rather than diesel and are designed for heavy freight use of well over 100 mile range before needing to charge. The first two vehicles will be employed by Tesco on daily freight operations between Cardiff and Magor. FSEW will manage the goods to arrive by rail to Cardiff in a move designed to further reduce the total carbon impact.

Introducing renewable biomethane fuel – We have also launched two further trucks running on 100% renewable biomethane fuel for freight transport use. Switching to biomethane fuel gives more than 85% reduction in CO2 emissions and up to 40% lifetime fuel cost saving from diesel.

This is just the beginning. We plan to replace more than 40 diesel vehicles with low-carbon alternatives and to switch fleet-wide zero-emissions transport operation by 2025.

Working in collaboration

We are working in partnership with decarbonisation specialist Egnida and electric vehicle experts DAF Trucks to launch the next generation of heavy freight trucks.

Egnida is helping FSEW to create a profitable low-carbon business model which will help FSEW to deliver a zero emissions service in the future and support customer demand for greener fleets


e-Freight Hub

Plans are underway to create an e-Freight Hub in Cardiff which will include a low carbon fuel facility for the use of all freight providers and commercial and municipal operators, including bus and refuse lorries. This will include an innovative storage system to make the most of local renewable energy generation as well as a new maintenance and assembly centre of carbon vehicles.


In 2022 we will reduce CO2e emissions by 1,439 tonnes on an annual basis by reducing our own diesel fleet by 25%.

We aim to switch to fleet-wide operational zero emissions by 2025.
