Deutsche Post adds the 20,000th e-vehicle to its delivery fleet

A year ago, Deutsche Post DHL Group, presented its Sustainability Roadmap and announced how Post & Parcel Germany plans to become more climate-friendly in its German operations. To showcase that the yellow brand is becoming greener,  Deutsche Post today added the 20,000th e-vehicle to its delivery fleet, this time in Berlin.  

Deutsche Post and DHL Parcel Germany’s budget allocated for this year alone in e-mobility  amounts to EUR 300 million. Deutsche Post DHL is also investing a similarly large amount in the construction and refurbishing of climate-friendly operating sites. These include carbon-free delivery depots – 100 of which are scheduled for completion at the end of this year. Over the next two years, Post & Parcel Germany will be acquiring more than 400 (bio)gas-powered trucks to make transporting shipments between mail and parcel centers greener. In addition, the company is now offering a new portfolio of “GoGreen Plus” products, offering customers the chance to proactively manage and reduce their carbon footprint by choosing climate-friendly shipment by rail.

“In the course of the last twelve months, we’ve become even more climate-friendly across all of our logistics services – from our product portfolio to shipping, from our buildings to last-mile delivery,” says Tobias Meyer, CEO Post & Parcel Germany at Deutsche Post DHL Group. “We currently have the largest e-fleet in the logistics sector. Deliveries in over 50% of our delivery districts are now carbon-free, and our overall emissions are well below those of competitors. If conditions allow, sustainable, carbon-neutral post and parcel services can become a reality Germany-wide in the course of the next few years.”
