Rhenus Home Delivery reinforces its electric fleet in the Iberian Peninsula

Rhenus Home Delivery reinforces its electric fleet with the acquisition of 21 new vehicles in Spain, replacing part of its diesel fleet, aiming to ensure that its operations are increasingly sustainable and efficient.

With the commitment to reduce carbon footprint and CO2 emissions resulting from its operations, Rhenus Home Delivery takes another step towards fulfilling its purpose by acquiring 21 new electric vehicles dedicated to operations in Spain. This investment aims to replace part of the existing diesel vehicle fleet, making operations more energy-efficient and environmentally responsible, aligning with its European vision of sustainability and commitment to providing the best solutions to its clients.

The new Ford Transit L3H3 100 percent electric vehicles, with a range of 260 kilometres in WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure), enable deliveries to be carried out more quietly and with lower environmental impact.

With this reinforcement, Spain will have 88 electric vehicles, joining the 86 existing ones in Portugal. Starting this summer, a total of 174 electric vehicles will be circulating in the Iberian Peninsula. “The goal is to have all vehicles in operation between July and August 2024, reinforcing the commitment to invest in sustainable and innovative solutions”, says Frederico Beck, CEO of Rhenus Home Delivery Iberia.

This investment not only reflects Rhenus Home Delivery's commitment to improving the energy efficiency of its operations, but also its dedication to promoting a greener and cleaner future for all. As the European leader in home and living logistics on the last mile, the company is determined to further expand its electric fleet, reaffirming its commitment to sustainability and environmental protection.
