Kerry tests out e-trucks

[ May 12, 2022   //   ]

Hong Kong forwarder Kerry Logistics is trialling 5.5-ton electric trucks, the first operator in the territory to do so. It is part of an initiative to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
William Ma, Group Managing Director of Kerry Logistics Network, said, “Kerry Logistics Network is in the process of shifting to alternative fuel vehicles and phasing out vehicles with lower emissions standards on a trial basis. As energy consumption accounts for most of the carbon emissions in our operations, we will continue to increase the use of renewable energy in the countries in which we operate, to create a value chain for sustainable business.”
Kerry Logistics Network’s first electric vehicle was deployed in Singapore in the second quarter of 2021.
It has also installed four charging stations at its global headquarters in Hong Kong to encourage the use of electric vehicles.
