Schavemaker’s first 100% electric truck.
Today is a special day for Schavemaker Logistics & Transport.
We had to wait a while, but we are proud to announce that today we have put our first 100% electric truck into operational use.
We are very pleased to have taken this step in collaboration with Volvo Trucks a world leader in the development of electric vehicles.
This is just the beginning of our journey towards a more sustainable transport system and we will continue to invest in innovation and technology to minimize our impact on the environment.
This zero-emission truck will be used 24/7 between Tata Steel in Velsen and Laura Metaal Staalcenter Maastricht in Velsen-Noord.
Because the truck visits many factories on the TATA Steel site and warehouses of Laura Metaal, this zero-emission Volvo Truck is a huge improvement for the working conditions.
The 180KW fast charging installation is located on our own Schavemaker terrain and our goal is to get as much generated solar energy as possible from the roofs of our warehouses into the truck.
This special day was attended by Martin van der Meer (TATA Steel) and Pieter HAUMANN (Laura Metaal)
