Nippon Express Italia S.p.A. (Arnaldo Vivoli, President; hereinafter, "NX Italy"), a group company of NIPPON EXPRESS HOLDINGS, INC. (Mitsuru Saito, President), has launched an eco-friendly delivery service in Venice, Italy that uses hydrogen-powered boats.
The European Union has set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% from 1990 levels no later than 2030, and companies operating within the EU are thus accelerating their decarbonization efforts.
To realize its long-term vision of becoming a "logistics company with a strong presence in the global market," the Nippon Express Group has made addressing climate change one of its material issues and is working to reduce CO2 emissions in its operations as well as to create products and services that help its customers reduce their own CO2 emissions.
NX Italy has launched a last-mile delivery service that cuts truck transport CO2 emissions by using hydrogen-powered boats for deliveries primarily to luxury fashion shops. These hydrogen-powered boats are equipped with removable hydrogen generators, and they emit far less CO2 than gasoline and diesel engines.
The Nippon Express Group will continue actively working to bring about a sustainable society by striving to reduce the environmental impact of logistics and building a resource-saving and recycling-oriented society.
