Valencia, Spain: Mercadona is using a Thermo King powered electric van for home deliveries.

Eneko Fernandez, product management leader, Thermo King, said: :”We decided to work together to create and test this combination of clean distribution and refrigeration technologies, which brings sustainable zero-emission last mile deliveries to Mercadona’s customers.”

The vehicle carries up to seven online-orders per trip and is part of the Mercadona fleet carrying deliveries from its online sales warehouse in Valencia.
