Ongoing commitment to emission reduction
The introduction of electric trucks into its fleet is a key part of CEVA's ongoing commitment to reducing emissions in the supply chain. It has partnered with Tevva, a UK-based developer of modular electrification systems for medium duty commercial vehicles, to undertake trials of the equipment to research which can deliver the best results.
Shaping the future –planning to introduce additional electric vehicles
The telematics-based data produced by the trial will enable both CEVA Logistics and Tevva to accurately understand how the vehicles can be used in the future to meet customer demands. All the research generated by the trial and the Tevva electrify initiative as a whole will be used to shape the next steps around the introduction of more electric vehicles and of what type into the company's fleet.
The trial also supports the Transport for London (TfL) FreightLab initiative, which aims to tackle congestion and keep goods moving in London and in which CEVA Logistics is a launch partner.
Says Mathieu Friedberg, CEVA Logistics CEO: "With this ambitious trial and partnership, CEVA Logistics contributes to the CMA CGM Group’s leadership in the energy transition of the industry, with a strategy combining operational performance and environmental excellence. We look forward to other like-minded companies joining us on the path to environmental excellence.”
