Cost and Safety Aspects of Using Electric and Hybrid Vehicles in Local Food Supply Chain

Abstract

Integrating electric vehicles in a supply chain and distribution is a viable option when special conditions such as short distance road distribution and environmental considerations as well as small amounts of goods enabling delivery with delivery vans are met. In this paper, possibility of investment in electric vehicles for distribution of local food will be examined and analysed. Safety concerns in electric vehicles will also be addressed and accident consequences and vehicle safety will be analysed and compared with conventional vehicles that use internal combustion engines.
