FedEx introduces all-electric vans to Belgium

Friday, March 17th, 2017

FedEx is using five new zero-emission all-electric Nissan e-NV200 vehicles for pickups and deliveries in the Belgian cities of Ghent, Brussels and Antwerp.

The five Nissan e-NV200 vans joined FedEx’s 150-strong Belgian vehicle fleet this month.

Erik Uljee, the newly-appointed vice president, Ground Operations Benelux, FedEx Express, commented: “When it comes to road network and transport, Belgium is a key player.

“As the world’s largest express distribution company with unmatched infrastructure and latest technology, FedEx aims to make a real difference in shaping the future.  Our first priority is to reduce overall mileage by optimizing routes.  We match vehicles to journey based on load volume and route length, and plot the shortest routes.  We also apply our logistics expertise to reduce empty miles when vans travel with less than optimal loading.  As major cities with important last-mile deliveries, Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels offer the perfect opportunity for the Nissan e-NV200 vans.”

Patrick Roedolf, senior manager, Operations, Clearance & Brokerage Benelux, FedEx Express, added: “The Nissan e-NV200 vans not only help reduce CO2 emissions, they are also quieter, which is generally a big issue in urban areas.”
