ZAP Xebra Electric Trucks Deliver in Urban Settings

July 2008, Work Truck - Feature

by Paul Dexler - Also by this author


The Xebra trucks are fitted with a lockable cargo box for the Coca-Cola delivery service.

The Coca-Cola Company and alternative transportation pioneer ZAP announced a project to use 30 Zap Xebra compact electric trucks for a new beverage distribution system in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Coca-Cola recently announced a pledge to the environment as part of its policy of corporate social responsibility. The beverage company will focus on three areas of great impact: water use, packaging, and energy use and climate protection. Jorge Apesetche, distribution manager for Monresa (Uruguay) says the project with ZAP is the kind of initiative Coca-Cola wants to make to do its part in good environmental policy.
