Geodis greening its fleet
Geodis is investing in a fleet of special vehicles for urban deliveries in France. The freight forwarder’s French organisation has ordered 200 units that will be fuelled with biogas. Delivery is scheduled for the end of 2021.
"By greening road transport in the last mile we will contribute to decarbonising the sector,” said CEO Marie-Christine Lombard. Geodis' goal is to provide 100% carbon-free transport to the city centres of the country’s 35 largest cities.
The choice fell on 107 Iveco Daily and 93 Eurocargo vehicles powered by BioGNV, a fuel that reduces CO2 emissions by up to 95% while offering the same performance as a diesel vehicle.
Compared to a Euro VI-E diesel vehicle, fine particle emissions are reduced by 95% and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) emissions by 90%. (sh)
