Dutch logistics service provider Nabuurs has announced plans to use DAF Trucks’ LF Electric distribution trucks to supply the hospitality establishments of AB InBev, the world’s largest brewing company, in Groningen.
DAF has commenced delivery of its zero-emission LF Electric distribution trucks, with Nabuurs being the first to acquire the vehicle.
DAF Trucks introduced its fully electric CF electric truck to the market in 2018 and now offers the LF Electric for lighter distribution tasks in urban areas. The LF Electric has a range of up to 280 kilometers and is equipped with a 260 kW (370 kW peak capacity) electric motor that is powered by a 282 kWh (252 kWh effective) cobalt and magnesium-free lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery.
Nabuurs is keen to gain experience with electric trucks to understand the impact on its planning and logistics. The LF Electric’s ability to charge both quickly and slowly was a major factor in the company’s decision to acquire the vehicle, enabling it to be charged at a normal 22 kWh charger overnight.
AB InBev is committed to reducing the CO2 emissions of its supply chain and has set a global Net Zero target for 2040. The company is already brewing its Bud brand using 100% renewable electricity.
