FM LOGISTIC: START UP OF ZERO EMISSION DELIVERIES IN MILAN’S CITY CENTER FOR CARREFOURItaly
Thanks to Citylogin, the sustainable logistic project, we will save 2,9 tons of CO2 for each single truck.
FM Logistic, the international logistic operator leader in the supply chain and transport market, spread in 13 different countries and with a turnover of 1.034 million euros, signed a new contract for the distribution of goods on all Carrefour Markets present within Milan’s city center, called Area C, with low CO2 emission trucks.
Since the beginning of February 2017 the deliveries distribution to Carrefour shop markets in Milan’s City Center (Area C) is deployed with a bimodal truck. If the outputs of the tests are positive the project will be extended with the introduction of new hybrid and bimodal trucks.
“The agreement we reached with Carrefour, that we hope to extend also in the city of Rome, it’s a key point of the sustainable logistic project we are carrying on thanks to Citylogin - declared Ugo Lemorini, FM Italy General Manager - We are talking about an innovative model which helps us to introduce the “0 Kilometers” concept also in transport businesses. We are very proud about the success the new service is gaining, born in Italy, but also deployed at Group Level”
Starting from February 2017 the rules to get in the Central Area of the City have been changed and restricted, extending the prohibition to access also to Euro 4 diesel vehicles without filter. Today on the other hand hybrid and electric vehicles have complete free access with no entrance ticket need.
