CASE STUDY Marchesi 1824
Steeped in tradition “Pasticceria Marchesi”, opened in 1824, is one of Milan’s oldest and finest pastry shops. It is considered a benchmark for the quality of its fresh patisserie, its signature chocolates and its classic Milanese Panettone. With 3 shops in central Milan area, including one in the Galleria near Dome square and one in Via Monte Napoleone, the top Italian fashion road, “Marchesi 1824” is now owned by the internationally renewed Italian fashion group Prada.
Matching tradition and innovation, “Marchesi 1824” has decided to join the “zero emission” philosophy and has recently ordered, for its home delivery service in downtown Milan, a new Nissan e-NV200 40 kWh electric van together with a Coldtainer F0720/NDN autonomous refrigerated container.
The Coldtainer F0720, is a 190 gallon 12V refrigerated container, with an integrated battery for more than 12 hours of autonomous operation. The internal battery of the Coldtainer F0720 is recharged overnight during the recharge of the traction batteries of the van. With the F0720 AuO the quality and freshness of “Marchesi 1824” pastries is guaranteed also during transport, with zero impact on the environment.
