Bolloré Logistics, Sarcona to deploy electric truck the for last mile delivery in New York

Bolloré Logistics and Sarcona have developed a new sustainable last-mile logistics solution utilising an electric vehicle between New Jersey and New York.

Made in the US, this truck reportedly has a range of 200 miles. It will run 359 days a year between Bolloré Logistics’ distribution centre in Ridgefield and the customer’s retail network in the heart of Manhattan, travelling approximately 60 kilometres per day.

Depending on the amounts given, approximately 10 to 15 tonnes of CO2e will be saved throughout a year, i.e. at least 70 per cent of CO2e and 100 per cent of air pollutant emissions.

“We look forward to implementing this new transportation solution and soon be able to measure all the benefits.”

Since 2020, Bolloré Logistics has invested in a variety of alternative-truck options, beginning with a renewable natural gas (RNG) tractor truck on the west coast and progressing to four compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks.

These many approaches have reportedly avoided at least 50 tonnes of CO2e per year in total. Other initiatives of a similar sort are already being considered, with deployment scheduled for 2024.

In October, Bolloré Logistics Greater China revealed its newly renovated headquarters located in Shanghai.
