Renault Trucks has decided to switch to Renault Trucks E-Tech T 4×2 tractors for the axles supply to the Bourg-en-Bresse plant. In practical terms, two partner hauliers have been chosen to carry out this task over the next six years, namely the Dupessey&Co Group and Transports Chazot.

Five electric trucks, each loaded with 22 tonnes of equipment, will make two round trips a day (360 km) to deliver the axles, manufactured at the Lyon site, to the Bourg-en-Bresse plant, where the heavy-duty trucks are assembled. Depending on the flow of goods, the number of deliveries can be increased, with up to seven trucks on the road in a single day.

How are the routes working between Renault Trucks’ plants

In terms of charging requirements, the trucks will require an interim charge of 45-50 minutes once a day at the Lyon site, where a charging station has been set up specifically for this purpose. The vehicles will also be charged every evening at the depots of the two hauliers. In fact, two 360 KW terminals (each with 2 charge points) have been installed at the Saint-Priest site to manage the interim charges for the various trucks in optimal conditions.

“We’ve worked long and hard to electrify this first logistics route, having chosen axles between Lyon and Bourg-en-Bresse because this is a flow that is emblematic of Renault Trucks’ business, with very high operational constraints, particularly in terms of output and precision. The launch of this project is a further illustration of our expertise in decarbonising mobility”, explained Bruno Blin, President of Renault Trucks. “Here at Renault Trucks, this kind of project is helping us build a new transport model. Our target for 2030 is to electrify our logistics on a huge scale, with all flows between our production sites using electric vehicles.”
