Shift EV Partners with Danone Egypt to Convert Fleet to Electro-fitted Trucks

by Madaline Dunn

Shift EV has partnered with Danone Egypt to electrify 50 per cent of the company’s distribution fleet. The project, which will utilise Shift’s electro-fitted technology, aims to reduce carbon emissions by over 6,000 metric tons.

Eng. Aly Eltayeb, CEO of Shift EV, explained that the product enables customers to “give their truck fleets a second life” using an electric propulsion system, which reduces fuel and maintenance costs.   

Further, it was shared that electro-fitted vehicles reduce operating costs by 70 per cent while also reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Hesham Radwan, General Manager at Danone Egypt, commented: “We strive to develop and improve our operations’ carbon footprint in Egypt and this partnership strongly aligns with our dual purpose and commitment towards business success and environmental and social progress.”

Egypt-based electric mobility startup Shift EV was founded back in 2019 and uses specially designed and locally manufactured lithium-ion battery packs to convert vehicles to run on electric drivetrains using an industrial process in a few hours. 

The electric drivetrains are designed to seamlessly integrate with the existing frame of a vehicle and remotely connect vehicles to ShiftWare, the EV fleet operating system, which enables digital visibility and control.
