First all-electric tug for London Gateway

[ June 28, 2022   //   ]

DP World has taken delivery of the first ever all-electric terminal tractor at a British port.

The Terberg YT203-EV is entering service at London Gateway will primarily be used for transporting goods the two mile distance from the quayside to a distribution facility at the adjacent logistics park. DP World plans to make its entire fleet of 11 terminal tractors at London Gateway all-electric in the near future.

Earlier this month DP World announced that its container terminal at Southampton had become the first in Britain to eliminate fossil diesel from its operations entirely by transitioning to Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO).
