Nippon Express Logistics (Thailand) Introduces Its First Electric Truck

– Supporting Customers’ Sustainability Management –

Nippon Express Logistics (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (hereafter “NX Logistics Thailand”), a group company of NIPPON EXPRESS HOLDINGS, INC., has introduced its first all-electric truck that emits no CO2 or pollutants while on the road as part of its efforts to address climate change.



The NX Group has positioned addressing climate change as a material issue for realizing its long-term vision of becoming a logistics company with a strong presence in the global market. It has declared its support for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) and is pursuing measures based on the TCFD’s recommendations. To date, the Group has introduced more than 12,000 hybrid vehicles, electric trucks, FCEV trucks (hydrogen fuel cell vehicles) and other environmentally friendly vehicles in Japan in an effort to reduce CO2 emissions in its own operations.

While electric vehicles are being increasingly adopted in countries around the world to reduce CO2 emissions, there have not yet been many examples of electric trucks being used as commercial vehicles in Thailand’s logistics industry. It was against this backdrop that NX Logistics Thailand introduced its first electric truck with maximum payload capacity of 8,800kgs and a cruising range of 200km (*) on Friday, January 19. This electric truck, assigned to the Bangkok Logistics Center near Suvarnabhumi Airport, will be used for air cargo delivery and other operations. The company will continue to consider actively introducing trailer heads and other types of electric trucks in future.
