Bolloré Logistics Australia takes delivery of its first hybrid truck

Bolloré Transport & Logistics and supply chain services company Czarnikow are collaborating to support Bolloré’s sustainable development in East Africa through the VIVE Sustainable Supply Programme.

Bolloré Logistics Australia took delivery of its first Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) in July 2022. The HEV was delivered in Melbourne and will be used to complete last mile deliveries for Louis Vuitton in Australia.

David Guarnera, State Manager of Victoria and South Australia, Bolloré Logistics Australia, said: “This was a collaboration with one of our key customers in the luxury sector. Both companies have a shared commitment to sustainability, and this is one of the many joint initiatives that we are focusing on to achieve and exceed our sustainability targets.”

The HEV is designed to be eco-friendly and the use of it for last mile deliveries is estimated to reduce CO2 emissions by 17% compared to conventional diesel trucks.

Part of Bolloré Logistics’ CSR program, Powering Sustainable Logistics, focuses on reducing carbon emissions in road transport with the aim of reducing overall the company’s transport services scope 3 CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030 (based on 2019 emissions).
