Coca-Cola Enterprises to Have 5 Hybrid Delivery Trucks in New York Fleet

Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) is adding three more hybrid-electric trucks to its distribution center fleet in the Bronx, New York, for a total of five. Currently, the Bronx sales center has 90 trucks servicing 8,700 customers in Manhattan and the Bronx, delivering more than 8 million cases of product annually.

The International DuraStar hybrid-electric delivery trucks use the Eaton Hybrid Drive Unit, and offer 32% lower fuel consumption than conventional trucks. International Truck and Engine Corporation recently began line production of the DuraStar hybrid commercial trucks. (Earlier post.)

Over the next year, CCE will add an additional 120 side load hybrid-electric trucks to its fleet across the country.

Coca-Cola Enterprises is the world’s largest marketer, distributor, and producer of bottled and canned liquid nonalcoholic refreshment. CCE sells approximately 80% of The Coca-Cola Company's North American volume, and is the sole licensed bottler for products of The Coca-Cola Company in Belgium, continental France, Great Britain, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Monaco.



Now they just have to work on their human rights issues of depleting water sources in emerging countries!

depleting water sources?.. they are bottling it, people drink it..what else is water for?.. I guess they can also use it to wash with but they will be sticky..


Water is for drinking not taking it away from people that need it all in the name of corporate greed.

This article mentions that CCE will purchase 120 hybrid trucks over the next year. This appears to be the largest order of hybrid trucks by a single company so far, and these aren't utility bucket trucks. Have any other private companies confirmed large orders of hybrid trucks during the next year?
