Electric truck integrated to Martin Brower fleet

A new electric refrigeration truck has been added to Martin Brower's Sydney fleet, and will service McDonald's restaurants in the area

Supply chain provider Martin Brower has introduced its first electric delivery truck into its Australian fleet, with the aim of adding more as it makes gains in its global net zero targets.

The new eight-pallet Volvo FL electric refrigerated truck will deliver to McDonald’s restaurants around Sydney’s metropolitan area seven days a week.

Its 230km of range, 4.6 ton holding capacity and lack of tailpipe emissions or noise makes the new truck well-tailored to operate within high-population urban environments like Sydney.

Martin Brower has been a key supply chain partner for McDonald’s since 1971, when it opened its first restaurant in the Sydney suburb of Yagoona.

It aims to achieve a 50 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and to achieve net-zero GHG emissions globally by 2050.

“The delivery of the first electric truck for the region is just one part of our broader sustainability strategy to decarbonise our operations and achieve our 2030 emissions reductions target,” says Martin Brower managing director ANZ Scott Hanigan.

“We recognise there is a lot of progress to be made in the electric vehicle space, we are excited to work with Volvo to better understand how we can integrate this new technology into our fleet moving forward.”
