Two Diesel Refrigerated Semi-Trailers for the Transportation of Perishable Goods.
Founded in 2014, Group Inter Five is an SME specializing in international road haulage, with a focus on refrigerated transport of fruit and vegetables to the whole of Europe, including England. The company has an in-house fleet of more than 20 trucks, while working with external hauliers to meet the growing needs of its customers.
With a view to optimize its resources and reduce its carbon footprint, the Inter Five Group has decided to replace its old trucks with two new refrigerated units.
The project involves the purchase of two new Thermoking refrigeration units and two Schmitz Cargobull S.KO COOL semi-trailers. As part of this investment, an application for leasing finance was submitted to one of the local partner banks under the Green Value Chain (GVC) financing line.
This new investment has boosted the company’s competitiveness by reducing energy consumption and limiting the downtime required for maintenance, resulting in increased productivity. In addition, the company has been able to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 3.8 tons of CO2 equivalent per year and its diesel consumption by 44%.
Green Value Chain (GVC) in Morocco is a credit facility of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to provide funding to local partner financial institutions for on-lending to Moroccan SMEs belonging to agribusiness, processing industries and logistics value chains and ecosystems. Supported by the European Union, the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the Korean Technical Assistance and Cooperation Account (KTACA) and the EBRD Shareholder Special Fund (EBRD SSF), the facility aims to improve competitiveness of SMEs and that of their value chains and ecosystems through highly efficient green investments.
