Renault Trucks has delivered the first of twenty electric 26-tonne Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E. vehicles to Feldschlösschen, a subsidiary of the Carlsberg Group.
We are proud to see our pioneering work with electric trucks, which began several years ago now, finally paying off. We are the first company in Switzerland and even Europe to use these environmentally friendly trucks for beverage transport. Our ambition is to take on a leading role not only in the development of beers and beverages, but also in beverage logistics and climate protection.—Thomas Amstutz, CEO of Feldschlösschen
Feldschlösschen will be using its electric trucks charged using renewable electricity, for the last few miles, while it will rely on rail transport for long distances.
