James Jones & Sons new electric truck was delivered last week and made its first appearance at the Royal Highland Show.

Lorna Slater, Minister for Green Skills, Circular Economy and Biodiversity, stopped by to find out more about the project and to see the new electric truck.

Along with Scotlog Haulage, James Jones & Sons is partnering with Volvo Group and Cleaner EV in a three year trial of electric timber trucks, which is being funded by Scottish Forestry. A key element of the three year trial is that all the partners involved are committed to sharing their experiences of running the electric lorries with others in the timber and rural haulage sectors. Creel Maritime consultants will monitor the use of the lorries and arrange knowledge exchange opportunities over the course of the following three years.
