DHL takes delivery of six fully electric trucks

12 December 2022/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain, Operations Management

DHL Parcel UK has taken delivery of six fully electric 16-tonnes Volvo trucks which will hit the road in London from January 2023 and 30 Liquefied Natural Gas Volvo tractor units which will start going into operation later in the year.

Both deployments are part of a €74 million (£64m) UK investment in green heavy fleet in line with Deutsche Post DHL Group’s sustainability strategy. This marks a another important step forward in DHL Parcel UK’s decarbonization plans and Deutsche Post DHL Group’s commitment to achieve net-zero emissions logistics by 2050.

The group will invest over €7 billion (£6 billion) in sustainable fuel and clean technologies by 2030.

Peter Fuller CEO, DHL Parcel UK, said:

“Our aim is to be at the forefront of change in UK road transport. Having zero emissions electric vehicles in our final mile heavy fleet is a major step forward in our vision of net zero logistics related emissions.”
