Thanks to an array of StreetScooter vehicles, developed and manufactured inhouse, and some 10,500 e-bikes and e-trikes, Deutsche Post DHL Group today operates the largest electric fleet in Germany. For the good of the environment and its customers, the company plans to replace its entire mail and parcel delivery fleet in the mid-term with electric vehicles that are charged with electricity generated from renewable energy sources.
StreetScooters emit neither carbon emissions nor local air pollutants. They are also quiet, which means a marked reduction in noise pollution. Moreover, independence from fossil fuels makes the use of electric vehicles a pioneering and economically attractive investment.
Deutsche Post DHL Group plans on being the industry’s driver of electromobility and market leader in green logistics. Its e-mobility offensive is also part of its ambitious GoGreen program, an environmental protection initiative that will help Deutsche Post DHL Group become the first logistics company to reduce all logistics-related emissions to net zero by 2050. The company has developed four interim goals to turn this ambition into a reality. One of them is to operate up to 70% of its own pick-up and delivery services using clean solutions such as bicycle delivery and electromobility by 2025, improving local air quality and reducing noise pollution along the way.
