HAVI and Scania have agreed a partnership with McDonald’s to drive down the carbon footprint of the restaurant’s transport operations across several countries in Europe.
The intention is to significantly reduce diesel powered vehicles and shift approximately 70% of HAVI’s total truck fleet to alternative fuels such as gas and hybrid models, by 2021.
The collaboration will initially focus on Europe while similar approaches are also being explored for Asia.
The CO2 emissions in deliveries by HAVI to McDonald’s restaurants utilizing Scania’s next generation trucks and operating solutions will be continuously monitored in real time, bringing existing fleet connectivity to the next level.
This significant transformation of the fleet is expected to lead to CO2 reductions ranging from 15 to 40% for every kilometer driven, depending on route, fuel and traffic conditions.
The gas and hybrid trucks are designed to generate close to zero air pollution and significantly reduce carbon emissions in cities.
Additionally, HAVI and Scania are developing a truck with special equipment to collect waste such as used cooking oil, plastic materials and cardboard from restaurants for recycling.
