Murcia edges toward 100% electric transport

Volvo Trucks delivers 15 refrigerated electric trucks to Grupo Primafrio

Volvo Trucks has delivered 15 refrigerated electric trucks to Grupo Primafrio. The trucks of type Volvo FH Electric will collect fruits and vegetables in the Spanish Murcia region, known as the Orchard of Europe. The Group says this transitions its regional operations to 100% electric. The new Volvo trucks are the first of their kind to arrive in Spain.

However, it is just part of the supply chain since the groceries from Murcia are ultimately headed to Germany’s Edeka supermarkets on routes not served by Grupo Primafrio. At the same time, Edeka supported its logistics partner in acquiring the electric trucks from Volvo. José Esteban Conesa, President of Grupo Primafrio, highlighted that this was “a joint project that allows us to add value to the supply chain”.
