Green energy for all Ceva warehouses
Ceva Logistics plans to transition all its contract logistics and freight warehouses to low-carbon electricity by 2025. The commitment will rely on a combination of purchasing low-carbon electricity (renewable and nuclear) from local utility providers and expanding its own production of electricity using rooftop solar panels, which the company will triple by the end of 2025.
In addition, Ceva is targeting to achieve 100% LED lighting in its warehousing facilities by the end of 2023. The global logistics provider is also increasing the size of its lithium-ion material handling equipment (MHE) fleet and expects its global fleet to reach a 40% level in 2023 of eco-MHE (lithium-ion and gel battery units).
Furthermore, the company reports that it can achieve an average 16% emissions reduction during the charging process whenever it switches from a lead-acid battery MHE to more eco-friendly lithium-ion batteries. (ben)
