Ceva Logistics to add 1,450 EVs to its fleet by the end of 2025

International logistics provider Ceva Logistics will expand its EV fleet to 1,450 electric vehicles by the end of 2025. It is another step to becoming net zero by 2050.

The company, now based in Switzerland, plans to operate 1,000 electric vans, 300 electric trucks and 150 electric tractor units. Ceva will use the vehicles for various operations and special projects, such as the recently launched joint venture European Clean Transport Network.

So far, Ceva uses more than 200 electric vans on all continents through its subsidiary Colis Privé and more than 20 battery electric trucks. It also operates electric trucks in its ground fleet in Brazil and for ground distribution for the sports retailer Decathlon in Thailand.

“Ceva identified electric battery trucks as the most promising technology to replace fossil fuels and initiated its transition to electric vehicles several years ago”, the company writes in a statement. However, it remains open to other technologies. Later in the statement, it says that Ceva wants to “further reduce emissions by scaling up the use of biogas and biofuels, testing hydrogen fuel cell and other low-carbon trucks and transitioning eligible full-truckload shipments to its rail solutions.” So FCEVs are in the running.

“An EV fleet of this size is a significant, tangible step in our journey towards a more sustainable future”, says Xavier Bour, global ground leader, Ceva Logistics. “Change can be difficult sometimes, but innovating and learning are fun and benefit our planet, while also motivating our teams. We believe in the future of EVs, and we’re committed to making that future happen.”

The logistics company is looking to reach net zero by 2050. According to Ceva, the expanded fleet would already reduce its CO2 emissions by 67,000 tons annually.
