Renault Trucks and its partner PVI (Ponticelli Vehicules Industriels) will provide most of the vehicles to operators working for an experimental logistics scheme in Paris for Monoprix, a major retailer.

The OEM is to supply four Midlum NGVs (GVW 16T) and ten Premium Distribution NGVs (GVW 28T) for Bourgey Montreuil-Geodis, along with four Premium Distribution NGVs for GT location.

The arrangement is an experiment in delivering merchandise, mostly by rail, to Parisian shops. Monoprix and Fret SNCF will use the fleet of 20 natural gas-powered trucks to transport merchandise from warehouses located in the city’s suburbs. The partners are expected to begin the trial in December.

The vehicles will be outfitted for controlled-temperature transport and fitted with a liftgate. Each will also have an Allison automatic gearbox with continuous drive power take off to run the refrigeration units. The company says that this system, combined with the natural gas engine, will deliver very low noise levels. The gas tanks will be specially fitted within the wheelbase to facilitate bodying work.

The Monoprix natural gas-powered trucks will be part of the first private French NGV distribution fleet, the company claims. The project involves 60 shops in inner Paris and will represent 120,000 tonnes of merchandise.

According to the partners, the rail/NGV vehicle combination will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 280 tonnes and nitrogen oxide emissions by 19 tonnes annually.
