Royal Mail Group (RMG) has signed a deal with EDF in the UK to deliver electric vehicle infrastructure.

The three year framework will see EDF provide charging points, associated maintenance and ancillary items such as signs, bollards and wheel stops.

The initial scope for the agreement will see chargers installed on Royal Mail Group sites in the South East of England, with potential for this to increase as required.

"The fact one of the largest fleet operators in Europe has committed to such an ambitious project is a turning point in our journey to a low-carbon future," said EDF Customers MD, Philippe Commaret.

"Working with Royal Mail to install EV infrastructure at their UK sites will allow them to accelerate towards an electric future and hopefully inspire other businesses to follow suit."

For his part, Royal Mail fleet director, Paul Gatti added: says: "We chose to work with EDF – not just as a supplier – but also as a solutions partner to implement our new sustainability strategy.

Over the three years we are confident that, alongside EDF, we can deliver the infrastructure needed to power Europe's largest commercial fleet of EVs."
