Spar Netherlands has announced that it will be adding double-decker trucks, as well as two 'super lorries', to its delivery truck fleet.
The double-decker truck can transport 75 containers, as opposed to the 48 containers that a normal delivery truck can carry.
The double-decker will be refrigerated on the top deck and non-refrigerated on the bottom deck. According to Spar Netherlands, 90% of its locations can be reached using the double-decker trucks.
The new additions will cut down on mileage, fuel usage, and driver hours, as well as overall CO2 emissions, the retailer said.
Last Saturday, Spar Netherlands opened its 50th Spar Express store, at Waddinxveen, close to the town of Gouda.
The new opening forms part of Spar Netherlands' goal to have 100 Spar Express stores open at Texaco filling stations across the Netherlands by the end of 2018.
