Friboi expands its fleet of 100 percent electric refrigerated trucks

With the move, the company reinforces the sustainable distribution of its products, in local trips within of urban centers, for its customers in 10 Brazilian states.
For the inclusion of new vehicles in logistics operations, Friboi will install electric vehicle charging systems in its Distribution Centers in Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, Mato Grosso do Sul, Goiás, Ceará, Pernambuco and Bahia. Since April of this year, when the first trucks were introduced into the fleet, Paraná, São Paulo and the Federal District already had adequate infrastructure.


“With the expansion of our electrified refrigerated vehicle fleet, we are taking another important step in transforming our logistics operations into a low-carbon model. The evolution of technology and the consequent increase in vehicle autonomy will allow us, in the medium and long term, to gradually expand our electrified fleet”, highlights Gilmar Schumacher, Friboi's Director of Logistics.
The expansion of the electric vehicle fleet will allow Friboi to stop emitting around 1,600 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year into the atmosphere. That's because electrified trucks will replace more polluting diesel-powered vehicles.


The trucks are from NoCarbon, an electric vehicle rental company owned by JBS Novos Negócios. Each of the models that will deliver Friboi avoids the annual release of around 30 tons of CO2 equivalent into the atmosphere, has a capacity of up to 3.2 tons of cargo and a range of 150 kilometers. They are equipped with refrigerated chests transporting both chilled and frozen products at the same time.
