Loblaw Companies Limited, a food and pharmacy retailer in Canada, has deployed two Volvo VNR Electric trucks to service its grocery stores in the greater Montreal area.
“It is a win-win opportunity to support customers who share our commitment to a sustainable future, so we are honored to be to be part of this journey with Loblaw as they work to transition their fleet to fossil-free solutions,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America.
“We operate stores within 10 kilometers of 90% of Canadians, which means we run thousands of deliveries every single day and millions per year,” said Rob Wiebe, chief administrative officer for Loblaw. “Finding viable solutions to decarbonize our transportation fleet is critical, as we work to fight climate change. It’s thanks to the innovation and dependability of organizations like Volvo Trucks North America that we’ll be able to achieve this goal.”
To support its battery-electric trucks, Loblaw installed four chargers including a 175 kW high-power fast charger.
