The fully-electric Renault Trucks 26 tonne D Wide Z.E. joined the company's one hundred-strong fleet and now supplies the Denner supermarkets in Zurich and its suburbs.

The solar panels fitted onto the vehicle body provide additional green energy for the refrigeration unit. This system is particularly suited to temperature-controlled transport, because it is when outside temperatures are high - and the sun is therefore strong - that the cooling is most needed.

Convinced that electric mobility is the most effective way to achieve carbon neutrality, Rhyner Logistik has also acquired a rapid charging station. To optimise autonomy, the truck is charged at the depot during loading operations.

Because the truck is driven in an urban environment that requires frequent braking, energy recovery also leads to savings of 20 to 30 percent, which translate into additional kilometres. It is a global approach that achieves an optimal result.
