Dutch retailer Albert Heijn will use eco-friendly vehicles for all deliveries from The Hague by the end of this year. This decarbonization includes delivery to customers’ homes and supplies to their stores.
Albert Heijn plans to increase the number of its electric fleet such as electric trucks and electric vans to support its decarbonization ambitions.
To improve air quality in Dutch cities a zero-emissions zone has been introduced starting in 2025. By 2030, only emission-free cars and delivery trucks will be allowed to pass through the city centre.
Albert Heijn’s fleet in The Hague is poised for decarbonization by the end of 2022, followed by Rotterdam (Q1 23) and Utrecht and Amsterdam in the second half of 2023.
