Renault Trucks and Feldschlösschen, a Swiss brewery belonging to the Carlsberg Group, have made a tangible commitment to carbon neutral mobility.
A First In Europe
Renault Trucks handed over the keys to 20 electric vehicles as both partners to mark this historic contract. "These 20 electric vehicles from Renault Trucks represent a true milestone for the Feldschlösschen company on the way to CO-2 neutral logistics. As Switzerland's leading brewery and beverage distributor, we produce our beers and beverages in environmentally friendly way and deliver them to our customers in the same way", commented Feldschlösschen CEO Thomas Amstutsz.
Bruno Blin, President of Renault Trucks added, "Renault Trucks is investing heavily to address the challenges of climate change. I am proud that our customers following the example of Feldschlösschen today, are on board with us. Together we are working to make sustainable transportation a reality.
Feldschlösschen took delivery of most of the 26-tonne Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E. trucks several months ago. The trucks, manufactured in Renault Trucks’ Blainville-sur-Orne facility in Normandy, handle deliveries to Swiss customers from the company’s twelve logistics sites. They have already covered a total of 66,000 km and transported 9,300 tonnes of goods. With electric vehicles from Renault Trucks, Feldschösschen will save 240 tonnes of CO2 a year compared to diesel trucks.
