The US group UPS, the world’s leading parcel carrier, chose Gaussin Manugistique to equip its logistics platforms with electric vehicles. This is apparent from the Master Supplier Agreement recently signed between the two companies. This agreement, which covers all UPS facilities in the world, is also accompanied by a first order for an ASBM (Automotive Swap Body Mover) vehicle for the UPS facility in London, the DP World London Gateway Logistics Park.
This 100% electric vehicle allows loading / unloading and transport of swap bodies of all sizes. With a battery life of 24 hours a day thanks to its battery charging time of less than 3 minutes, the ABSM has very low operating costs.
