XPO’s green revolution: 165 electric Renault Trucks charge into action
This new order includes 105 Renault Trucks E-Tech T 44t tractors, reinforcing the ongoing collaboration between Renault Trucks and XPO in their joint commitment to decarbonising the transportation industry.
XPO remains at the forefront of the global shift towards e mobility, reinforcing its commitment to sustainability with a substantial investment in its fleet transition. As a prominent player in the transport and logistics sector, the company’s second order includes 60 Renault Trucks E-Tech D and D Wide, as well as 105 units of the latest electric model, the E-Tech T, slated for series production in Bourg-en-Bresse by the close of 2023. This strategic move underscores its proactive stance in adopting cutting-edge electric technologies for a greener and more sustainable future in the logistics industry.
Bruno Kloeckner, Managing Director of XPO Logistics of France, emphasised the importance of this acquisition:
“This is our second significant order for electric trucks, following the order we announced in January 2023, and demonstrates XPO’s commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. Our multi-energy transition strategy is based on a range of solutions and initiatives that complement each other, particularly when it comes to fuels. Since our first electric test in 2021, we have been impressed by this technology, which has also proved popular with drivers. We are also renewing our gas-powered vehicles and increasing the use of biofuels.”
The recent order of 165 electric trucks marks a pivotal step towards the gradual replacement of its diesel fleet for suburban and regional operations. With a forward-looking approach, XPO aims to transition approximately 25% of its deliveries to EVs by 2030. This ambitious goal is projected to curtail the company’s CO2 emissions by over 26,000 tonnes, underscoring its strong commitment to sustainable practices in the transportation sector.
As XPO and Renault Trucks charge ahead, their alliance signals a bold leap. With an eye on impending urban delivery regulations, XPO transforms its fleet alongside Renault Trucks, not just for compliance, but to empower clients in decarbonisation efforts. Looking ahead, XPO aims to slash greenhouse gas emissions in France by 25% by 2025, while Renault Trucks aims for 50% EV sales by 2030 and pledges carbon-neutral vehicles by 2040. Together, they’re reshaping the future of transportation, setting a game-changing standard for global sustainability.
