Arval France supports Chronopost in the electrification of its LCV Fleet
Rueil-Malmaison, June 27, 2023
Arval, a leader in the multi-brand leasing of corporate vehicles, and specialist in mobility solutions, supports Chronopost in the management and electrification of its fleet.
For the past 10 years, Arval France has been supporting the transformation of nearly half of Chronopost’s fleet, which currently consists of 1,800 vehicles in full-service leasing throughout France, including 7% gas-powered vehicles, 51% diesel, 24% hybrid vehicles (gasoline and electric) and 15% electric vehicles. The vast majority of these vehicles are for last mile deliveries.
In order to reduce the impact of its business and optimize its deliveries, Chronopost is committed to sustainable urban logistics and focuses its efforts on the last mile. Deliveries in 67 cities are already 100% made by low-emission vehicles. By 2025, Chronopost’s target is to increase at 50% low-emission vehicle deliveries. In parallel, Chronopost completes its commitment by implementing an eco-responsible routing. For this project, 2022 was the year of realization. As a result, the Chronopost fleet has now around 200 low-emission trucks, making 200 connections per day. By 2025, Chronopost aims to achieve 25% of its routes by means of environmentally responsible transport and alternative fuels.
Ford delivered the first Electric Transit on May 16 in its Saint-Denis dealership. On this occasion, deliverers came to pick up their new vehicle and benefited from Arval’s advice on their rental contract and related services. Throughout May 2023, 10 Ford Transit electric vehicles completed the Chronopost fleet.
“For several years now, Chronopost has been committed to sustainable urban logistics, which means electrifying our LCV fleet. It is great news that Ford is developing vehicles with more volume and more range. This is in line with our CSR approach” declares Julien Ferreira, Deputy Head of General Purchasing at Chronopost.
“At Arval, we are proud to support Chronopost in achieving its electrification and fleet optimization objectives. Chronopost is a long-standing customer of Arval with whom we have a strong commercial relationship and whom we support in the energy transition by offering them, through Ford, innovative and adapted solutions. Customer satisfaction is at the heart of our strategy and we are delighted to be working with Chronopost to reduce the environmental impact of their deliveries, everywhere in France.” said Margy Demazy, Sales Director at Arval France.
“The Ford E-Transport, leader of its category in 2023 with nearly one registration out of two, is helping companies decarbonize their commercial vehicle fleet. In addition to sharing a more virtuous and sustainable mobility with Chronopost, we are committed to offering complete solutions (charging, connected services and others) via the Ford Pro Ecosystem to make life easier for our customers and optimize the productivity of their vehicles. We are delighted to celebrate the delivery of their first E-Train to the Chronopost teams with the support of Arval. We thank them for their trust and wish their employees all the best” said Marc Jenniches, Ford Enterprise Director.
