You might notice a new sight on roads around Auckland and the Waikato with Fonterra using an electric truck for the first time to cart its products. The Volvo FL Electric truck is the latest addition to Fonterra’s EV fleet following its first fully electric milk tanker to its ranks last July. The new EV truck boasts a range of roughly 200km per charge, making it ideal for delivery runs within the city. Last year Fonterra implemented a new policy that all light vehicles be transitioned to EV when next replaced. Fonterra’s aim is for more than 300 light vehicles to be electric vehicles by the end of 2023. It has a fleet of 13 trucks that deliver products to supermarkets and depots in Auckland with 180 trucks from its 35 depots across the country, carting products to dairies and service stations.
