Volta Trucks, the leading and disruptive all-electric commercial vehicle manufacturer and services provider, has announced a further partnership with Petit Forestier as an extension to its previously announced purchase and supply agreement, providing refrigerated rental and leasing truck solutions across Europe and the UK. 
 
The new agreement will see PETIT FORESTIER UK LIMITED become the rental and leasing partner for the refrigerated version of the all-electric 16-tonne and 18-tonne Volta Zero across a selection of Volta Trucks’ European markets including France, Spain, Italy, Netherlands and the UK. 
 
Customers will benefit from Volta Trucks’ expertise in electric trucks and charging infrastructure, combined with Petit Forestier’s expertise in refrigerated full-service solutions, helping to further simplify the transition to an electric fleet.
