Electricities: urban delivery on the road to zero emissions

 

The acceleration of climate change and its dramatic consequences require us to intensify our efforts to protect the environment. At the heart of our activities, the transport of goods in urban areas is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions.

25%

of CO2 emissions by transport will come from delivery transportation[1].

 

A significant shift is currently taking place in the diesel delivery vehicles towards trucks and vans using alternative power sources, among which electricity stands for a significant substitute. With a range of up to 150 miles and zero carbon emission, electric vehicles are ideally suited to "last mile" deliveries.

Electric test& learn at Lyreco Italy

In May 2021, Fiat Professional (a Stellantis brand) selected Lyreco Italy for contributing to the pilote project of the new e-Ducato, the first Fiat Professional 100% electric vehicle. A way to contribute to low emission, low sound distribution and to reduce the traffic in city centers thanks to their long-distance capacity.

As selected partner, Lyreco received a test van which they will use for 2 months to collect the necessary data to upgrade the E-Ducato and make it a true asset for responsible urban and near-urban delivery.
