The Shore Porters’ Society has invested £500,000 in vehicles.
Aberdeen-based removals and storage company, The Shore Porters’ Society, is looking forward to the year ahead with a £500,000 vehicle investment. The company has invested the impressive sum in the purchase of six new vehicles that utilise state of the art low emission technology.
The investment is in response to government legislation which stipulates that vehicles entering London must meet certain emission standards or pay a daily charge of £200 to enter the city. Although introduced in 2008, the Low Emission Zone (LEZ) emissions standards have recently become more stringent, encouraging Shore Porters to invest in its fleet as the company continues to secure a large volume of work in and around the London area.
Kevin Brown, a partner at the firm, is confident that the investment will reap the benefits in the long term. Mr Brown said: “We’re delighted to invest such a significant sum in upgrading our vehicles, which once again highlights our commitment to continually moving with the times. I am confident that 2012 will be a strong year for Shore Porters and I am sure the investment in the vehicles will reap the reward over the coming months.”
