“We’re extremely proud to bring a 100% net zero-emission service to the transportation and logistics industry,” said Alex Norman, co-founder of Origin. “Low-carbon technology has developed to a point where we can offer reliable, cost-effective transportation services to our clients; whether that be electric, hydrogen, or natural gas. As freight logistics is one of the fastest growing contributors to the climate crisis, we believe now is the time for businesses to consider net-zero solutions.”

“We’re thrilled to offer a zero-emission delivery service, the first of its kind in the Okanagan Valley,” added Jason Lowe, Westwood’s Okanagan sales manager. “Our partnership with Origin furthers our mission to deliver the best possible product to our customers: we care about everything from how the cabinet is designed, to how it’s delivered.”
