Major logistics operator DB Schenker has recently purchased 53 Renault Trucks E-Tech D for its operations in France. This order for 53 electric carriers is to date the largest by Schenker France, and follows several tests performed in French agencies.
DB Schenker France to receive the trucks starting September 2023
The first 50 electric Renault Trucks E-Tech D of 16 tons and 3 E-Tech D of 19 tons will arrive in branches starting September 2023. The deployment is already underway in 19 metropolitan agencies with the installation of electric charging infrastructure and will be completed until March 2024. These vehicles will ensure urban, suburban or regional trips with an average distance of 150 to 200 kilometers day, lower than the average range of 300 km.
Here are the words of Frédéric Vallet, CEO Schenker France: “We have the ambition to be the world leader in green logistics. Electric powered trucks are an integral part of our vehicle portfolio. We ensure that their share is continually increasing. The implementation of the new Renault Trucks vehicles will be another step towards achieving these ambitious targets.”
