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.
