Belgian bottler to cut CO2 emissions by 75%
Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) will start using 30 electric trucks to make last mile deliveries to local customers in Belgium.
Through a key partnership with Renault Trucks, the beverage manufacturer is electrifying one-fifth of its truck fleet and creating the largest fleet of electric trucks in Belgium. With the new vehicles, the company plans to reduce its CO2 emissions by 75% compared to diesel trucks.
The first five Renault Trucks E-tech D and D Wide are already in service in the Antwerp area, and other trucks will arrive at the manufacturing and distribution sites in Ghent and Chaudfontaine in the coming months. The new e-vehicles can cover 200 km per day, enough for 40% of CCEP’s current local delivery routes. (ben)
