DB Schenker Electric Trucks

Committed to its ambition of reducing emissions, DB Schenker, one of the world’s leading logistics service providers, invests in electric technology and acquires 53 Renault Trucks E-Tech D for its operations in France.

Frédéric Vallet, CEO of Schenker France: “We have the ambition to be the world leader in green logistics. Electric-powered trucks are an integral part of our vehicle portfolio. We ensure that their share is continually increasing. Implementing the new Renault Trucks vehicles will be another step towards achieving these ambitious targets.”

To date, this order for 53 electric carriers is the largest by Schenker France. It follows several tests performed in French agencies.

Schenker France receives 50 electric Renault Trucks E-Tech D of 16 tons and 3 E-Tech D of 19 tons. The vehicles will arrive in branches starting September 2023. The deployment is already underway in 19 metropolitan agencies with the installation of electric charging infrastructure and will be completed by March 2024. Depending on the needs of the branches, these vehicles will ensure urban, suburban or regional trips with an average distance of 150 to 200 kilometres per day. Their average reach is about 300 kilometres.

With this acquisition, Schenker France affirms its commitment to decarbonize its fleet of vehicles. Its objective is to reduce its CO2e emissions in absolute terms by 50% for road activity in 2030 compared to 2021.

DB Schenker’s ambition is to be a leading provider of green logistics. The company uses an energy mix to succeed in its energy transition and constantly innovates in deploying new solutions. In high acceleration, battery-powered electromobility reduces CO2e emissions by more than 90%.
