Bollore Logistics launches hybrid trucks for deliveries in Taiwan

Continuing its efforts towards greater environmental sustainability, Bolloré Logistics Taiwan has launched a first hybrid truck for local deliveries in collaboration with Chieh Yu. The Hino 300 HV was selected to meet growing demand for greener logistics solutions on the domestic market and comes equipped with a nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery which has the advantage of proven reliability, safety and durability even in high current applications, as well as resilience to overcharging. It is a 6.5 tonnes truck with a payload capacity of three tonnes per trip. The new Hino Hybrid can also accelerate gently without increasing diesel engine revs, using the electric motor for propulsion instead. Additionally, the vehicle will cover nearly 20,000 km per year, plying from clients’ warehouses up to their boutiques anywhere within Taiwan Island.
“Powering sustainable logistics is not just a tagline to us, we actively practise this philosophy to deliver greener, smarter, and cost-effective solutions across the domestic market. We truly believe that the use of cleaner trucking technologies will help to shape the future of the logistics industry in a responsible manner and are thankful to the stakeholders who have stood beside us in pioneering such initiatives and innovating towards a greener, better future”, said Helen Hung, Managing Director, Bolloré Logistics Taiwan.
