Hamburg Port Consulting (HPC) is supporting Frankfurt Airport-based air freight logistics services company CHI Cargo Handling International to convert its truck fleet to climate-friendly propulsion.
CHI has commissioned HPC to identify the propulsion technology suitable for the areas of application in a feasibility study, to appoint an efficient truck manufacturer and to compile a funding application for the investment.
The study centres on short-haul transport but the performance requirements for future use of CO2-free trucks in long-distance transport between Frankfurt Airport and Nuremberg Airport were also examined.
HPC also assisted CHI in applying for funding for the procurement of its first electrically powered truck, including charging infrastructure. The project is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport with around €500,000.
