Nicholls Transport foregrounds carbon-saving qualities during National Lorry Week

Kent haulier Nicholls Transport demonstrated its green credentials when the RHA’s National Lorry Week truck rolled into town to showcase the industry’s sustainable practices.

The Sittingbourne-based transport company launched its first LNG-fuelled HGV back in 2019 and since then it has saved thousands of tonnes of carbon.

Local MP Gordon Henderson also paid the firm a visit and it revealed to the roadshow that the second half of 2022 had led to a 191% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Nicholls Transport added that in the year to May 2023, it had also saved 3,180 tonnes of CO2.

Rob Gearing, head of commercial and business development at the haulier said that when it started using LNG it hoped to achieve a 90% saving and so its latest results had “far exceeded our expectations.”

He said: “Nicholls were also able to show that after becoming an ATF for the DVSA, from January to August we had saved 9,500kg of CO2 being produced by not taking our vehicles off site for MOTs.”

The firm also showed attendees how the bees around its site are generating honey and candles for ‘Nicholls Nectar’, run by Samantha Nicholls.
