Leading international express service provider DHL Express has geared up to electrify its last-mile delivery fleet with the deployment of 24 electric vans in Jakarta and Bandung.
The introduction of the new e-vans, which are expected to cut 177 tonnes of annual carbon emissions, underscores the company’s commitment to more sustainable operations and contributing to climate protection.
The new electric vehicles will join the existing fleet which includes four electric vans and six electric bikes serving areas in Jakarta and Surabaya.
Ahmad Mohamad, Senior Technical Advisor, DHL Express Indonesia, said the plan is to transition the company fleet to electric vehicles and make them available in other Indonesian cities. The company will also invest in other low-carbon solutions, such as e-trucks and solar panels for facilities in Indonesia.
As announced in its Sustainability Roadmap, Deutsche Post DHL Group will invest 7 billion euros until 2030 in CO2 reduction measures. This includes electrifying 60 percent of the last-mile delivery fleet across the Group.
