Commitment to Sustainability

Farrall’s Group, a third-generation family transportation company, is committed to reducing carbon emissions. The Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with HVS underscores this commitment by planning trials for zero-emission commercial vehicles.

Matthew Farrall, Managing Director at Farrall’s Group, emphasized the company’s dedication to environmental responsibility:

“Our team is continually looking at ways to reduce and improve our environmental emissions output. We all have a responsibility to look after our environment and as a family we are extremely conscious we must set a responsible example for all to follow. Our partnership with HVS allows us to explore the benefits of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and helps us to deliver a greener running fleet to improve our impact on local communities.”

MOA Partnership Details

The MOA aims to provide Farrall’s Group with HVS hydrogen fuel cell HGVs for trial in late 2025. The partnership will include vehicle data sharing, TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) modeling, route planning, and performance optimization.

John McLeister, Chief Commercial Officer for HVS, commented:

“Here at HVS, our focus is on collaborating with transport and logistics providers to help them achieve their net zero targets. We are closely aligned to the climate aims of the Farrall family and are looking forward to supporting them on their net-zero journey. Our close cooperation with the hydrogen supply chain will ensure that our vehicles offer a highly competitive TCO by supporting with the most appropriate hydrogen infrastructure for the organisation, and providing a zero-emission fuel cell vehicle that offers heavier payloads, longer range, and faster refuelling compared to battery electric alternatives.”
