Bolloré Logistics India Adds Two Electric Trucks to its Fleet

Bolloré Logistics India

In line with the objective of reducing carbon emissions, Bolloré Logistics India has added two new electric vehicles to its fleet in Mumbai & Bangalore. The first was rolled out in the Delhi NCR region in May 2023.

Ideal for intra-city pick-ups & deliveries, these vans eliminate more than 3,500 litres of diesel. These are primarily used to deliver goods to highly environment-sensitive customers and provide an eco-friendly transportation option to all other Bolloré Logistics customers in India. By increasing its fleet of low-emission vehicles, Bolloré Logistics India is demonstrating its commitment to reducing its environmental impact and supporting India’s transition to a more sustainable economy.

India is one of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases, and the transportation sector significantly contributes to these emissions. Electric trucks, therefore, offer a promising solution to meet this challenge.

Indeed, electric trucks help improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A study by the International Council on Clean Transportation found that battery electric trucks emit 63% less greenhouse gas emissions than diesel trucks and 17% less greenhouse gas emissions than CNG trucks.

In addition to environmental benefits, electric trucks are a source of savings for businesses. Electricity costs are generally lower in India than diesel and CNG fuel, and electric trucks require less maintenance. A study by the NITI Aayog found that electric trucks can save businesses up to Rs. 1 crore over the vehicle’s lifetime.

So far, these electric trucks have travelled over 10,000 km across Delhi, Mumbai & Bangalore, saving 8.30 MT in greenhouse gas emissions. CNG trucks deployed have already covered more than 138,500 km, reducing emissions by 27.03 MT since they were deployed.
