Fraikin et la transition énergétique

Transitioning your fleet 

The traffic restrictions imposed by low and ultra low emission zones, the latest new regulations introduced and the challenges of climate change are directly affecting your fleet and your business. 

Fraikin is there for you, helping you to find customised solutions.  

Why and how should you decarbonise your vehicle fleet?

How can you switch to greener vehicles without taking a financial risk?

To be effective without disrupting your business, your fleet energy optimisation should take place in several stages:  
1. A review of the fleet, to understand all your needs, habits and limitations 
2. Production of an assessment report based on the data collected in the observation phase 
3. Proposal of alternative-energy vehicles, based on your actual needs and the evaluation of your current fleet  
4. Customised services, to offer you realistic recharging and refuelling solutions  

Greening your fleet is not just a business or legal issue. By decarbonising your fleet, you can not only meet the requirements of new public policies; you can also play an active part in reducing harmful particles and combating climate change. Improving the air quality for all our communities.

Our change management method

To provide the most appropriate response to your energy transition needs, we will review and understand a number of factors directly related to your strategy, your activities and your location.  

Your usage and activity: distances travelled, types of journeys, equipment… 
Your fleet: types of vehicles, associated costs, planned renewals… 
Your challenges: CSR policy, regulatory compliance, commercial opportunities, planned growth and developments… 
Your greening options: compatible energies, nearby charging points, driver training…

Preparing for a major challenge

The energy transition of commercial vehicle fleets has been an area of interest for us for many years. Back in 2008, we welcomed our first electric vehicle to our fleet, and have continued to support many customers with their energy transiton to the present day. That's why we can help you choose the sustainable mobility solution that's best suited to your business, and your needs.   

Step by step, we will work with you to build a solution for you, by studying your organisation, your projects, your infrastructure, your activities and your drivers. Our design office, our experts and our experience are at your disposal to help you prepare for this major change.   

This means we can work out the transition solution that's right for you because:

That's what we call tailor-made by Fraikin!

The phasing out of traditional fuels, coupled with the growth of low-emission zones means that we have to plan now for decarbonising our fleets, we need to start the conversation with everyone, and help partner them through these challenges.

Faced with the major challenge of combatting climate change, road transport must reinvent itself. Today, our sector contributes a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions in Europe, and given the commitments taken to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, we must work together to accelerate our industry’s decarbonisation ambitions.
