Heineken lightweight inner-city delivery truck
Heineken will supply the beer at cafes lighter, quieter and cleaner!
To provide this, a lightweight minitrailer was built for Utrecht city center.
Since 2018, heavy trucks may not be used to supply bars in the city center of Utrecht. To protect the historic bridges and quays in the city center the municipality introduced a maximum weight of 2 tons per axle for authorized vehicles. As a result, Heineken supplied the Utrecht bars with hoses of almost 200 meters from the edge of the city center.
So it’s time for innovation. The more compact tank beer trailers are the cleanest EURO 6 trailers, reducing CO2 emissions. Heineken would prefer to work with electric vehicles, but to ensure this has not yet been possible: “Unfortunately, they cannot yet make the move to electric trucks because there are currently no compact electric vehicles that can transport this weight.
