National vehicle movement and inspection company DMN Logistics is switching its entire corporate fleet to electric vehicles.

The company has 20 head office staff and more than 100 drivers throughout the UK and has partnered with flexible leasing company Sogo as part of the move to switch its entire corporate fleet to electric.

Bosses at the Birmingham based logistics company say they chose Sogo as its fleet partner because of its ultra-flexible leasing, which provides same-day access to a wide range of EVs and LCVs.

Gary Xuereb, commercial director at DMN Logistics, said: “As we came out of lockdown we looked for an EV fleet partner that could provide the flexibility we need as we continue to grow. Sogo is a great fit because they share our passion for great customer service and they have a fair and sensible pricing policy.

“The move to EVs has proven popular with our team who enjoy the high spec and driving dynamics of the vehicles. We have a mix of EVs on fleet including Hyundai Kona and Nissan Leaf. We are currently leasing LCVs on a monthly basis which gives us the flexibility we need without the costs of daily rental.”

DMN Logistics say the introduction of the Birmingham Clean Air Zone this year was also a contributing factor in moving the entire fleet to EVs.

Karl Howkins, managing director of Sogo said: “Our team works closely with DMN Logistics to ensure we have the right vehicles at the right time. Our ultra-flexible model means the fleet mix can be adapted quickly to meet operational requirements and they always have access to the vehicles they need, from SUVs to LCVs.”
