Greenway Services Presents Success Story Of Using Renault Maxity Electric Trucks
Greenway Services, a French company specializing in “last kilometer” deliveries in all-electric vehicles, has been serving its entire client base with Renault Trucks Maxity Electric since 2011 and the delivery company seems to be happy with EVs.
The fleet of 10 trucks already covered 220,000 km (or 137,000 miles) in Paris and its suburbs, and soon will be expanded by two additional vehicles.
Nicolas Morisse, Managing Director of Greenway Services stated:
“Our aim is to combine respect for the environment with service quality. Thanks to our Maxity Electrics, we can guarantee our clients’ ‘last kilometre’ deliveries totally free of polluting emissions and noise, thereby keeping any nuisance for those living in the vicinity of our operations to the strictest minimum.”
“The Maxity Electric’s high payload and operating range enable us to draw up logistics plans adapted to our clients’ needs, optimise our rounds and thereby amortise the extra cost involved in an all electric solution.”
“Some of our long-standing clients, such as L’Occitane in Provence and Yves Rocher are already strongly committed to preserving the environment, and using a zero emission mode of transport enables them to pursue their commitments even further. But we are also convincing more and more businesses which are anticipating major changes in the way their goods are delivered in the future and are beginning to switch some of their deliveries in Paris to all electric.”
Payload of the Renault Maxity Electric is 1,500 kg (3,300 lbs), while range is up to 100 km (62 miles). Lithium-ion batteries can be recharged in seven hours.
“Greenway Services has adopted an overall environmental approach, offering its clients additional services to deliveries such as collecting and recycling packaging and delivery materials (palettes, film and cardboard boxes) as well as the Green Box (collection of batteries, lamps, paper and store consumables).”
