Specializing in the delivery of parcels weighing less than 30 kg, Chronopost hopes to provide a low-emission service by 2025 in 225 European cities, including 77 in France.
The conversion of the fleet started in 2019 with the Grand Paris. The following year, 16 major French cities benefited from this program. Among them are Bordeaux, Cannes, Lyon, Marseille Nantes, Rouen, or even Strasbourg and Toulouse.
The list has just been extended with 24 additional cities, such as Annecy, Avignon, Caen, Nancy, Orléans, Pau, Perpignan, Reims, Tours, Troyes, Valence and Vannes.
The fleet of cargo bikes, electric utility vehicles and trucks running on NGV/bioNGV passes the symbolic milestone of 1,000 units with the 360 new vehicles added.
You will increasingly come across the first 2 models of machines in urban areas. Natural gas will gradually replace diesel in around sixty daily road connections provided by heavy goods vehicles.
The role of these trucks will be to deliver parcels from Chronopost hubs located on the outskirts, and agencies located in or near city centers. This alternative fuel would be used on 20% of these lines within 4 years.
In 2 years, Chronopost has thus gone from 0 to 20% of parcels delivered with low-emission vehicles. This percentage should rise to 50% in 2025.
This policy has required the release, since 2019, of 25 million euros. In addition to the acquisition of vehicles, this budget covers the cost of adapting buildings and energy supply equipment.
