DHL to add 63 electric vans to its fleet

DHL-electric-van

DHL announced that it will be rolling out a new fleet of 63 electric delivery vans from Workhorse Group that will serve U.S. markets.

The Workhorse Group electric vans are capable of running up to 100 miles on a charge, the vans have ultra-low floors to reduce physical stress on workers’ knees and back, and a high roof design that maximizes cargo space in a small footprint (1,008 cu ft of cargo capacity), according to the manufacturer. DHL will roll out the first 30 NGEN-1000 electric delivery cargo vans in the San Francisco Bay Area.

DHL has set a target of operating 70% of first- and last-mile delivery services with clean transport modes by 2025 as part of its longer-term corporate commitment to reduce its logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050.

“Throughout the United States, DHL has proactively sought opportunities in select markets where we can implement AFV fleets that will help us reach our clean transport goals,” said Greg Hewitt, chief executive officer of DHL Express U.S. “This year alone, nearly 30% of our new vehicles will be alternative fuel.”
