The beverage manufacturer is electrifying one fifth of its truck fleet, which it says will reduce its CO2 emissions by 75% compared to existing diesel trucks.
The Renault Trucks E-tech D and E-tech D Wide models that Coke bought each have a range of 200 km (124 miles), which is more than enough for 40% of CCEP’s current local delivery routes. The company has deployed an on-site charging station for each truck, and claims that these are powered by 100% green energy generated at the site.
“Our industry is facing difficulties that require rapid adaptation, but we are also firmly committed to maintaining a long-term approach. Investing in electric trucks will allow CCEP to cut CO2 emissions by 30% across the entire value chain by 2030 and become climate-neutral by 2040,” said An Vermeulen, CCEP’s Country Director for Belgium and Luxembourg.
