Nippon Express Logistics (Thailand) Rolls Out its First EV Truck

Nippon Express

Nippon Express Logistics (Thailand) Co., Ltd. has introduced its first EV truck that emits no CO2 or pollutants while on the road as part of its efforts to address climate change.

First EV Truck Introduced by Nippon Express Logistics

The NX Group has positioned addressing climate change as a material issue for realising its long-term vision of becoming a logistics company with a strong presence in the global market. It has declared its support for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) and is pursuing measures based on the TCFD’s recommendations. To date, the Group has introduced more than 12,000 hybrid vehicles, EV trucks (electric vehicles), FCEV trucks (hydrogen fuel cell vehicles) and other environmentally friendly vehicles in Japan in an effort to reduce CO2 emissions in its own operations.

While electric vehicles are being increasingly adopted in countries around the world to reduce CO2 emissions, there have not yet been many examples of EV trucks being used as commercial vehicles in Thailand’s logistics industry. It was against this backdrop that NX Logistics Thailand introduced its first EV truck / maximum payload capacity: 8,800kgs, cruising range: 200km on Friday, January 19. This EV truck was assigned to the Bangkok Logistics Center near Suvarnabhumi Airport, and will be used for air cargo delivery and other operations. The company will continue to consider actively introducing trailer heads and other types of EV trucks in future.
