DHL Express Boosts Electric Vehicle Fleet in Indonesia

DHL Express has geared up to electrify its last-mile delivery fleet with the deployment of 24 electric vans in Jakarta and Bandung. The new electric vans (e-vans) will eliminate 177 tons of carbon emissions yearly.

The introduction of the new e-vans underscores the company’s commitment to paving the way for more sustainable operations, and its contribution to climate protection. Currently, there are four e-vans and six electric bikes serving areas in Jakarta and Surabaya.

As announced in its Sustainability Roadmap, Deutsche Post DHL Group will invest a total of €7 billion until 2030 in CO2 reduction measures. This includes electrifying 60% of the last-mile delivery fleet across the Group.

John Pearson, CEO of DHL Express said: “According to the Climate Transparency Report, the transportation sector contributed to almost 24.9% of the total carbon emission in Indonesia in 2021. As the backbone of the economy, the logistics sector has a responsibility and a role to play in reducing carbon footprint.”

“DHL has a clear roadmap to achieving that and will not cease to identify new and available solutions to support our mission. This means taking real action and working with like-minded partners to help us drive our sustainability targets,” he added.
