Gebrüder Weiss is electrifying the last mile in Hungary. Ten electric vans have already been in use in the capital Budapest since the summer. Since the pilot phase was successful, the company wants to offer delivery to the end customer with e-vehicles in other Hungarian cities as well.

Specifically, these are the cities of Győr, Pécs, Zalaegerszeg and Szeged. Ten more of the Ford E-Transit e-transporters are to be used there as early as next year. In Budapest, the E-transporters were in use seven days a week and covered a total of 72,000 kilometres in three months.

“Our vehicles are powered by a low-noise and eco-friendly electric motor, which makes them the perfect choice for urban traffic. Not only do they help improve air quality, but they also contribute to our organizational goal of becoming climate-neutral by 2030,” explained Bálint Varga, Country Manager Hungary at Gebrüder Weiss. “We want our transports to be as sustainable as possible, and these zero-emission deliveries are an important step in that direction.”

To achieve this, the logistics company not only relies on battery-electric vehicles, but also on hydrogen. Gebrüder Weiss has had one hydrogen truck in operation in Austria and one in Switzerland since 2018. This is an electric truck of the type MAN eTGM.
