DHL Supply Chain relies on sustainable mobility in its fleet. The next step on the road to zero emissions is the installation of the innovative and award winning TRAILAR solution upon the roofs of seven medium-sized distribution trucks. DHL Supply Chain will operate these vehicles not only on Czech roads, but also in Slovakia and Austria.
Warren Bodley, Transport Director & Eastern Europe DHL Supply Chain shares: "True to our 2050 strategy “zero emissions”, our Czech Republic team have once again deployed Go-Green technology to their fleet partnering with TRAILAR.” He adds "I am really proud of our teams contribution to reduce air pollution, thereby making a greener and safer environment for everyone, this also bringing our clients sustainable solutions. I look forward to the future, delivering Green initiatives from DHL Transport and TRAILAR.”
Peter Badan, Director of Transport DHL Supply Chain CZ & SK said: "Environmental aspects of our work as well as our social responsibility in this area are very important. That is why we have been taking the necessary steps with my team for a long time to reduce CO2 emissions and the use of TRAILAR solutions is one of them."
DHL Supply Chain will have a total of seven alternative fuel trucks in its fleet in the Czech Republic, equipped with our innovative solar technology, which will reduce CO2 emissions by 4.5 tons per year for each vehicle but also reduce fuel and maintenance costs. Our system generates electricity from sunlight or natural light. It is used to charge the vehicle battery and power ancillary equipment on that vehicle. This reduces the load on the alternator and, as a result, fuel consumption. In addition to lower emissions, lower operating costs are therefore also a welcome benefit. The state-of-the-art telematics system verifies the savings, providing detailed information on the efficiency of the entire system. The first six vehicles with the TRAILAR solutions have been in operation since September 2020, the seventh vehicle will be included in the DHL Supply Chain fleet in the Czech Republic in December 2020.
We look forward to our on-going work with DHL Supply Chain, supporting the company’s commitment to zero emissions and greener logistics by 2050. Discover more about our solar solutions here or get in touch with a member of our team.
