Decarbonising in-house logistics flows

Pushing ahead with its decarbonisation initiatives, Renault Trucks has now begun to electrify its in-house logistics flows.


The first stage of this project involves the electrification of axle transport between two French plants. The 450,000 km driven each year will be handled over the next six years by Dupessey & Co and Transports Chazot using five 44 t Renault Truck E-Tech T electric vehicles, saving 375 t of CO2 every year.


Five to seven electric trucks, each loaded with 22 t of equipment, will make two round trips a day (360 km) to deliver the axles, manufactured at the Lyon site, to the Bourg-en-Bresse plant, where the heavy-duty trucks are assembled.


Renault Trucks is currently working on the electrification of around a dozen other logistics flows, due to be operational in the months and years to come. (ah)
