Eco-Friendly Delivery Services on Croatian Islands: Gebrüder Weiss Introduces Electric Tricycles for Last-Mile Deliveries

Logistics company enhances sustainability with low-noise electric vehicles for small town and island deliveries

Gebrüder Weiss, a logistics company, has introduced eco-friendly transport solutions in Croatia’s island communities. They are now using electric tricycles for deliveries to private homes and businesses on the islands of Rab and Lošinj. These tricycles have low-noise, high-performance electric motors, making them ideal for maneuvering through narrow streets and small towns, especially during the tourist season.

The use of electric tricycles helps maintain the islands’ authenticity and uniqueness while providing customers with an eco-friendly delivery service. The tricycles can transport items weighing up to 500 kilograms and cover 50 kilometers per day on one battery charge.

Additionally, Gebrüder Weiss Croatia is using electric vans for deliveries in Zagreb. These vans can cover 170 kilometers on one battery charge, enabling up to 35 eco-friendly deliveries per day. The company’s own Photovoltaic system, powered by solar panels installed on the logistics facility’s roof, charges the van batteries, contributing to saving about 107 tons of CO2 per year.

These sustainable measures are part of Gebrüder Weiss’ commitment to achieving climate neutrality targets by 2030. The company has been investing in alternative drives for heavy load transport and developing eco-friendly solutions for the last mile, such as electric trucks in the Greater Vienna metropolitan area and hydrogen trucks in Switzerland. Further acquisitions of hydrogen and electric trucks in Germany are planned for 2024.
