Five electric articulated trucks equipped with Krone Cool Liners semi trailers have been put into operation by WIN Capital Group, intended for deliveries to Aldi branches. According to Krone, the drives were specially converted for this project to be able to deliver goods with low emissions within a radius of 230 km. The batteries can be fully recharged in just two hours. With this solution, Aldi saves 3,600 liters of diesel per unit per month and thus contributes to the achievement of its global sustainability goals.
Krone Cool Liners, waiting for more achievements
WIN Capital Group is one of the major logistics players in Hungary with having over 150 truck & trailer equipments, and the main pillars of its activities are supported by real estate development and real estate leasing. Krone has recently announced a significant partnership with Trailer Dynamics in view of possible electrification of trailer production. At the end of September 2021, Krone introduced a prototype of the eMega Liner, which, according to the very first tests carried out, was able to achieve a 20 percent CO2 reduction compared to a traditional version.
“We are grateful that we can contribute the trailers for the first electric articulated trucks in the region in cooperation with the WIN Capital Group and Aldi. Supplying food retailers in the greater area around the metropolis of Budapest places special demands on the equipment. That is why Happy Cargo (one of WIN Capital’s subsidiaries) and Aldi rely on the high reliability of the Krone Cool Liner”, said Somogyi Gábor, Managing Director of Krone Trailer SE Kft. in Szigetszentmiklós.
