From 1 September, two new MAN eTGM trucks will be part of City Logistics’ fleet. MAN eTGM is a 100% electric 26 ton truck. The two electric trucks will drive for customers such as Matas and DSV as well as Lyngby, Roskilde, Fredensborg and Hørsholm municipalities.
“I am proud that City Logistic is at the forefront of the green transition and addressing cities’ last mile challenges with a 100% electric fleet. It’s great to see an increasing number of municipalities as well as companies join our sustainable solution and thereby reduce their CO2 footprint, “said Peter Bardenfleth, Group CEO of City Logistic.
City Logistic not only wants to reduce environmental impact and CO2 emissions within delivery and distribution, but also to take part in reducing congestion on the roads and making cities greener.
“At Matas, we have a very ambitious goal for reducing our CO2 consumption. That’s why we are happy to collaborate with City Logistic, a frontrunner in the use of electric vans and electric trucks in Denmark,” says Brian Gøbel Poulsen, Logistics Director at Matas.
And the results speak for themselves. Calculations from Lyngby municipality show a reduction in congestion by 57% and CO2 emissions by 98% compared to the municipality’s previous distribution set-up.
The two new electric trucks are only the first step. City Logistic will continuously expand its fleet, so that City Logistic can offer delivery and distribution to all major Danish cities, before expanding to more than 200 cities internationally.
On Thursday, 2 September, the media and journalists can visit City Logistic Roskilde to see the new electric trucks and the entire City Logistics fleet of 100% electrics bikes, vans and trucks.
