Rhenus Group has initiated trials to evaluate the feasibility of alternative fuels in regions and traffic segments suitable for these new mobility models. This initiative marks a significant step in Rhenus’ ongoing commitment to sustainability and the decarbonisation of its vehicle fleet.

In Madrid, Rhenus has introduced a battery electric truck developed by the German brand Quantron. This electric truck will handle goods transportation in central Madrid, particularly in emission-sensitive areas. This project is the result of a four-year agreement between Rhenus and Quantron Spain, aiming to ensure economic viability and long-term sustainability.

Meanwhile, in Andalusia, Rhenus has incorporated a Scania truck adapted to use liquified biogas, which is fully compatible with renewable gas. This truck will supply Carrier, a global leader in heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration solutions, at its production plant in Montilla (Córdoba).

The deployment of these vehicles allows Rhenus to identify potential applications for alternative fuels in various operational areas. The results obtained from these trials will provide valuable insights into key variables such as autonomy, performance on distribution routes, and technical viability across different terrains.

“These initiatives demonstrate our commitment to innovation and reflect our desire to improve environmental performance in the logistics sector,” said Andreu Gutiérrez, Country Sales Director Road of Rhenus Logistics in Spain. “The implementation of these vehicles in two very different traffic segments will allow us to draw valuable conclusions to scale our commitment to the most advanced technologies in mobility.”
