Sendle’s new partnership: a step further towards a future of zero emissions delivery

Sendle, Australia’s 100% carbon neutral parcel delivery service, has rolled out  a fleet of solar-fuelled electric vehicles for small business parcel delivery in partnership with Bonds Couriers.  

The fleet of 100% electric vans don’t use electricity off the grid but are powered on site by 319 solar panels at the Bonds depot in Western Sydney and can work full 10 hour days, covering over 200 kilometres in metropolitan areas and still finish the day with ample charge.
Each electric vehicle is saving over 220 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre, which on a typical 200 km journey day saves 44 kilograms of CO2 (that’s equivalent to burning 19 litres of petrol), with no fossil fuels consumed and zero emissions.

Sendle co-founder and CEO, James Chin Moody said: “We believe that shipping can be good for the world and environmental stewardship is a key part of that. The devastating bushfires this year were a terrible reminder of what is at stake if we don’t take action to drastically lower our carbon emissions. Everyone, including business, has an important role to play in creating a sustainable future. It’s mission critical that we continue to reform the industry and the arrival of Bonds’ solar powered electric vehicle fleet couldn’t be more perfectly timed.
“We are Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral delivery service and we’re always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and optimise for sustainable delivery across the entire network. We’re proud to partner with Bonds as part of that commitment.”
Bonds Couriers CEO, Jonathan Ryce, said:  “Working with Sendle to roll out electric vans charged by our very own solar array is a pivotal moment for our business. Our partnership has seen us delivering an increasing number of parcels for small businesses in the e-commerce industry and there’s huge interest from our customers for electric vehicles and sustainable shipping. We hope this move will inspire our peers in the industry to know that doing greener business is not only possible but vital to our long term viability.”
