“This is a hydrogen-fueled truck refrigerated via electricity, although with a much longer range than a traditional electric vehicle. The GoH! truck is also faster to reload. At Migros Geneva, we are also delighted to participate in the green development of the professions, by educating our apprentices, our mechanics and our drivers about the maintenance and operation of hydrogen vehicles."
As part of the Migros group’s promise to decarbonize its fleet of delivery vehicles, the Société coopérative Migros Genève has launched the project for a hydrogen vehicle. It looked for partners, contributed to the definition of the characteristics of the vehicle and carried out the useful tests.
By transporting its products with the GoH! Truck, which only releases water, Migros is fulfilling its promise to reduce its carbon footprint and consolidating its progress towards sustainable logistics. A cooperative company, Migros enables its members, employees and customers to progress together in an agile and innovative environment for a better future.
Migros is thus the main and final user of the GoH! technology.
