The Shoprite Group’s new electric truck: heavy duty and “glow in the dark”

“As Africa’s largest grocery retailer, the Shoprite Group places significant focus on reducing its environmental impact across its operations. One of the ways we’re doing this is by increasing the energy efficiency of our truck fleet. The acquisition of this, one of the world’s most advanced electric trucks, which we will charge using our existing renewable energy infrastructure, is another major move in this direction."

- Andrew Havinga, Chief Supply Chain Officer for the Group
