AGP site transport goes electric

In 2019, our logistics and operational teams in Ardagh Glass Packaging - North America began replacing the propane forklift vehicles we use on our sites for transporting goods internally with electric vehicles.

Starting at our Dunkirk, Indiana warehouse our new Automatically Guided Vehicles and electric forklift trucks have been a game changer. By converting to electric, our Dunkirk warehouse is paving the way for decarbonising our forklift trucks, reducing fire and safety hazards and saving 3,280 gallons of liquid propane annually. Thanks to the successes demonstrated at Dunkirk, our team are on track to convert propane vehicles across 80% of our other AGP - North America facilities by 2030.
