The world is becoming more eco-conscious and in an attempt to help reduce gas emissions, improve air quality, and as a result, reduce the overall environmental footprint, governments around the world started to ban petrol and diesel cars.
Electric cars are considered as the answer to questions of green and clean mobility and are increasing in popularity. Individual consumer choices are important, but we need collective action to achieve the fundamental change that will really make a difference for our environment. One area where this shift will be needed more than elsewhere is the logistics industry, as a key economic sector in Europe.
In the name of environmental protection & sustainability, Maurice Ward Group (MWG) has decided to change over to electrical cars. To reduce our environmental footprint, all new MWG company cars & the ones coming to end of life, will be replaced by electric cars. This means that we should have a 100% electric fleet quite quickly. Some countries such as MWG UK, France & Czech Republic have already started the process. In MWG Czech Republic, e.g. the first 4 electric cars were just delivered to us. In addition to that we have ordered extra 20 Nissan Leaf 40kW cars that will all be delivered this year. These will replace petrol & diesel Skoda Octavia & VW Passat vehicles. To make it easier for our staff, we are building ”fast charging stations” at our key facilities in the Czech Republic. Nissan Leaf is an environmentally friendly, affordable, electric family car which is one of the models that is leading when it comes to electrical and hybrid vehicles.
Environmental sustainability is a critical issue faced by the mankind at present. In order to protect the environment from pollution, residues, emissions and all kinds of wastes, everyone should be entrusted with the responsibility and authority to take care of the environment.
We are making a smart choice for our environment!

The first every ‘cargo only’ flight was recorded in November 1910 in the USA, using a Wright Model B aeroplane that flew 65 miles carrying a package of silk. The business owner used the pioneering transport more as a PR stunt to celebrate the opening of his store, with the bundle of silk cut into individual pieces and glued onto souvenir postcards.
