Increased sustainability for Australia
Linfox Logistics has introduced the first electric truck for the Australian retailer Coles. The electric vehicle is an important step towards Linfox and Coles’ shared sustainability goals, the two companies said.
The Fuso eCanter services several Coles stores in New South Wales, loading products from the Eastern Creek Distribution Centre for delivery to Coles supermarkets and new format Coles local stores. Based on anticipated usage, at least 60 t of CO2-equivalent will be avoided annually with this vehicle compared to the same size Euro 6 diesel powered truck.
The emission-free Fuso eCanter is powered by 100% renewable electricity. Linfox now has six electric vehicles in operation for major customers.
