Electric vehicle for parfums and cosmetics?

This 16 t vehicle will be delivering supplies to Maison de Parfums & Cosmétiques boutiques in Paris over the next two years. It generates no polluting emissions or noise nuisance and will be tested on regular, demanding delivery rounds of over 200 km.

Committed for many years to the principles of sustainable development, Guerlain and the Paris region carrier Speed Distribution Logistique have joined forces with Renault Trucks to test a 16 t all-electric experimental vehicle under actual operating conditions: the 100% electrically-driven Renault Trucks D.

This truck will be carrying out daily deliveries to the Guerlain boutiques in Paris from its distribution centre, covering over 200 km. To operate over such a long route, a first for any electrically-driven vehicle, the Renault Trucks D all-electric will recharge its battery several times during each 24 hour operating cycle. Its route has been planned so that it can carry out two partial recharges during the day and a total recharge between 7 PM and 2 AM.

“The initial tests we’ve carried out using this technology under real operating conditions with our customers have been very satisfying,” explains Christophe Vacquier, Renault Trucks’ project manager. “We are now going further with Guerlain and Speed Distribution Logistique, using the vehicle on 200 km rounds which gives us confidence in the future of this technology.”

The test is scheduled to run until the end of 2015. A full appraisal will then be carried out and added to Renault Trucks’ expertise in the field of electrically-driven medium tonnage vehicles and its customers’ requirements. This will then be used to determine the direction future research will take.

1532.jpgFor Alexandre Oulès, director of operations and Philippe Bernard, logistics manager at Guerlain, becoming jointly involved in this unique programme was an obvious choice. For Guerlain has made sustainable development part of its strategy for more than seven years, focused on six major challenges which include a determination to reduce the level of CO2 emissions generated by goods transport. It was also an opportunity to work with Renault Trucks and Speed Distribution Logistique on an innovative project, based on a joint commitment to protect the environment.

Marc Bachini, Speed Distribution Logistique’s founder explains why his company has become involved in this project: “Based on my own convictions, I defined an economic model that respects people and their environment. After having invested in all-electric Renault Maxity delivery vehicles in 2013, this civically-responsible approach naturally led me to pursue this path and incorporate an experimental 16 t all-electric vehicle to be used for warehouse collection. This enabled me to offer Guerlain, a pace-setting company in sustainable development, a totally emission-free delivery cycle.”

    This all-electric truck is great for the environment, and I am sure that most of my Equipment Radar friends will agree with what I am saying here. This is the truth and nothing but the truth.

    The world has understood the importance of savings and this could be one of the most advantageous features of Recession. The lavish living style and extravagant expenses are being replaced by the cautious and careful buying. The people prefer to have those products and articles which can give them more of the benefits. This psychology has produced the discount and schemes to get on top of the business.

    Even in the trucks buying people are searching for the options that can make their money saved and can help them to have a better and smarter future with the help of saved money. With this theme, the people started to make the buying of used trucks for sale instead of new one as they were having almost all the options of new trucks but the superior feature of offering these things in cheaper rates. They are offered sometimes at half of the prices of the new one. The used trucks sale therefore has increase highly and has got major share in the total sales of trucks last year. Further money saving offer is being offered by many of the online trucks for sale sites, the theme was to sell the used trucks directly by owners. Here are some of the features and advantages of the concept, used trucks for sale by owners.
