AQUILA, the market leader in the field of integrated distribution and logistics services for consumer goods in Romania and the Republic of Moldova, has invested over 6 million euros in renewing the fleet of vehicles that serve the company’s distribution activities.
This investment, aligned with the sustainability strategy launched in 2022, involved the contracting and acquisition of all 196 vehicles planned for this year, including 25 DAF tractor-trailer trucks with Euro 6 engines.
To increase the efficiency of the logistics activity, AQUILA has also invested in semi-automatic wrapping machines, automatic pallet strapping tools, and an automatic paper tape dispenser for sealing boxes, in accordance with the investment plan communicated previously.
For the current year, AQUILA has budgeted investments of 12.7 million euros, of which 7.6 million euros are allocated for the purchase of means of transport.
Răzvan Bagherea, Director of Organization and Human Resources, AQUILA: “The investments made are in line with the company’s sustainability strategy. By modernizing the vehicle fleet and investing in warehouse equipment we aim to reduce our carbon footprint and waste generated in our day-to-day operations. We will continue to implement measures to achieve the decarbonization targets set for 2026: the reduction by 20% of the carbon footprint of the vehicle fleet and by 3% of the warehouses. These measures include the gradual replacement of the fleet with low-emission vehicles, increasing energy efficiency, complying with environmental standards, and promoting sustainability in the company’s activities. All vehicles purchased meet Euro 6 emission standards and are predominantly equipped with gasoline, LPG, and hybrid propulsion systems.”
Currently, AQUILA has over 1,600 vehicles, with a freight transport fleet equipped to handle goods across all temperature categories (ambient, refrigerated, frozen).
