Arcese to introduce the first fully electric vehicle for deliveries to the city centre

Arcese’s first electric van for last mile deliveries is here.

In Milan city centre only, the Nissan e-NV200 van is used for deliveries to high-value clients. An additional vehicle will be introduced in London and later in Barcelona in early 2018. Technical and feasibility evaluations for other cities, such as Geneva and Zurich, are underway.

The adoption of electric vehicles is part of Arcese’s strategic plan to further lower the pollution emissions. The overall autonomy of e-NV200 is about 160 Km, ensuring a payload of 770 kg. It takes only a few hours to charge the vehicle at the charging station installed at the company facilities. Deliveries to the city centre become a matter of a few hours.

We believe in sustainable logistics and distribution to protect the environment and human health,” said Matteo Arcese. “We are confident that, thanks to these choices, we can continue to grow our business and that of our clients, who have shown increasing attention and sensitivity towards these issues, providing reliable and sustainable solutions. We are proud to say that, once again, we are moving in the same direction.”

But this is not Arcese’s first environmentally-friendly initiative in recent years. The company has always stood out for its attention to sustainability. In fact, the new electric vehicle will join the eco-friendly natural gas powered vans introduced in 2015. The latter have allowed us to reduce CO2 emissions by 5-8% ensuring a performance that meets the limits imposed by the Euro VI standards. These data will be even more promising with the introduction of the new electric vans.

The innovative eco-friendly fleet will optimise efficiency and investments both for Arcese and its clients, thereby reducing costs and emissions while protecting the environment.
To this end, another important initiative by Arcese Group is the introduction of plastic boxes in the flows between Italy, France, and the UK, which partly replace cardboard boxes for some types of goods. These plastic boxes can be reused or recycled. Another step forward towards sustainability, as the results show. In just a few months, these containers have reduced cardboard consumption by over 55% as well as damage to the goods.
